Bill will be missed! I often joined my father, Lonnie Tillery with Bill and Kat for lunch in Punta Gorda. It was our monthly get together. We had such a good time getting together. He and my father went way back and would talk about the days they ran around together in High School.

I have known Bill for several years. We would see each other at family events and when he moved to Florida I would visit in the summer every few years. He was always very pleasant to be around We would talk on the phone often for 45 minutes and he would say I talk to you longer than my daughters. I will miss being able to talk wit him and visit for the rest of my life!
