Was a really nice service.

I was watching the pictures scroll by, thinking how befitting it was that EVERY SINGLE ONE he was either making a funny face, or he had that big ear to ear Bill smile.

That's how I'll always remember him.

God bless ya B'

Good ride, great group of Family. Bill impacted quite a few people. It was an honor to share one last ride. Godspeed Bill, looking forward to trying to show the "Milk Truck" my wheel on endless twisties!

Very nice service, my condolences to Bills friends and family. The letters from his kids and nice words from his mom really hit home for me. Nice to meet some of you guys and gals. Nice job on the slideslow and video whoever worked on them.

I'm glad I was able to be at the service. It made me appreciate Bill even more. But, I almost lost it when Joe included that clip of Bill going through turns at PIR from behind. It's like he was still with us.

Thank you, Bobby, for sharing the video. It was great to meet you and to see so many old friends. Bill, it was an honor and pleasure to spend time with you. You will always be remembered as a a gentleman, and your contagious smile will never be forgotten.

yes, thanks for sharing the video. So much gets captured and helps with the memory.
Here are a couple old pics from fun times (Daniel and Ben's) that seem worth re-sharing:

Great to see the support from the moto community, a very important part of Bill's many facets of life. You guys are amazing!

I posted Bill's memorial video on YouTube, but it got blocked for copyright reasons <shrug>. So, it's on my FB page and tagged to Cori's, the kiddos', cat's, & dog's page :D It's set to public, so you just have to log in to view.

We are so touched and honored, we really do not know what to say. We are looking at differant things that we can add to the truck to help you the riders. It may be a light bar, so that we are seen when we are working on the side of the road, or a a differant piece of equipemnt to help us do our job faster so that we can get you off the side of the road faster.
If any of you have an idea of what you would like to see us add to the truck/trailer we are open to suggestions.

We all will miss Bill and his big smile and huge heart.

Thank you to those that sent donations.

Lisa and Aaron

RIP Bill!

I was working out of the country when Bill passed and heard about it upon my return. Bill was a great guy and I spoke to him several times at several events and rides and he was always a pleasure to talk motorcycles and riding with.

My prayers go out to his family!

RIP Brother

I never met Bill but he was instrumental on helping me with a 2500 mile road trip. I was looking for advice on the best roads in Eastern Oregon and he PM'd me the best roads from the Rowena Loop to Ashland Oregon. That trip is still one of the most epic trips I've ever taken and the major reason for the success of the trip was because of Bill selfless act of taking the time to help a rider he never met or rode with.

Sorry, I thought we had posted this. This is the light bar that was purchased with the memorial contributions. Know that when we are on the side of the road, we have Bill looking over us and shining his light.

Thanks Joe. Hard to believe it's been a year already and even harder that he's not around any more.
