    Tami, Tracy and family,
    Our thoughts are with you at the loss of a father and great friend. Bill always had a smile for friends and will be sadly missed in this world. We now have only memories of the gentle giant but what great memories they are! Please accept our deepest condolences.

  • Bill Whaley says:

    I just knew Bill for years from his coming to Mexico, where we sat many times at Burro’s sand bar, over a beer. He was one of the nicest guys you would ever want to meet, and he is going to be missed greatly at the “canuck” table here, where I am the “token gringo”. He is gone now, but will always be here with us at the table. I am so sorry for our loss of a fine guy.—-Bill W.

  • Linda Farrell says:

    “Eclipse” was to me a mighty man. When he shook your hand, you could feel it for a week. I hope that Tammy, Tracy and families can draw from his strength and the strength of those around you to get through this tough time.
