Bill was a rather quite person, but also very interesting to talk to. He was a very devoted family man, a great husband, grandfather, great grandfather, and loved by all those who knew him. Bill is resting in peace, no pain, no sickness. We can rest in comfort knowing where he is. May God give comfort and grace to the family as they go through this difficult time.

I am so sad to hear about Bills passing. What dear childhood memories we shared. What a treasure to have him in my life for this many years.

When I moved to 'burg in 1953 from Cincinnati; Bill, my wife Beverly and I became classmates in the third grade. We became instant friends. Bill was my wife's first boyfriend in the 6th grade. Over the years we played together as kids, played baseball, football and basketball while in school and Summers. We both joined the Navy Reserve together while in our Senior year, and both went on Active Duty after graduation. After serving 4 years Bill elected to stay in the Navy Reserve while I stayed on Active Duty. In 1973-1976 Bill and I were together again when I was his instructor at Rickenbacker AFB in Columbus. We remained friends over the years with frequent calls and visits and even enjoyed his burgers at the poolhall in 'burg. Bill and his lovely wife Sue moved to Florida where I also happened to live, and visited or talked frequently. They eventually moved back to Batavia about a year ago to be closer to family, and we talked frequently. Upon Bill's death I was devastated, I had lost my best friend, classmate and Shipmate. But, he is in God's hands and I know he is OK. My Condolences to Sue and his family, I am here for you. Mark Wass

My family and I lived beside the Arwines. I was a babysitter for the kids once in a while. Great family, you are in my prayers :pray:

When I was about 5 or 6, uncle Bill tricked me into thinking white powdered donuts were gator tai. When he would come and visit his brother Tom (my papa), he would always ask me if I had any gator tail. Im going to miss my favorite Uncle Bill.
