While I never met him, I admired Bill for his dedication to local social service organizations. His Letters to the Editor reminded one and all of the importance of supporting people in need.

I am sorry for the loss of your dad. Bill was always so sweet and was such a joy to see in our office. I admired him for caring for his older neighbor. I was very glad he came the last time to say hello and goodbye. I will miss my friend.

Bill was such a sweet man. He came to my previous job and was always smiling and telling stories and I was sad to leave that job and still asked about him frequently, which I hear he asked of myself as well. So sorry to hear of him passing and he will be missed.

We were so sad to hear of Bill's passing. He was one of our regulars and all the employees loved chatting with him. His smiling face and attitude always brightened our day. Bill will certainly be missed here at our restaurant.

Bill will be sadly missed. He would stop into the shop to discuss whether or not the Hawkeyes were going to win. He would then tell us a story from 1958 and how similar the situation was then to now.

Mr. Bleeker was my teacher at Newhall, Iowa. I do remember him as being
very soft spoken and great teacher. Not sure if he taught my youngest

Debby - Sorry to hear about the passing of your Dad. It was always a thrill for me to see Bill at Finkbine. It was always a great to stop for a while, sit down with him, and talk about old times. I will miss that!! My thoughts & prayers are with you and your family!
