Bill will be missed by the whole community, and especially fellow vets. When I hear the word "patriot" it is his image that comes to mind.

I have many found childhood memories of Toot and Brownie. He will be dearly missed by so many of the Jack and Agnes Schall family. RIP Brownie! Our sincerest condolences to the Brown family.
