Marge, John Lynn's comments are right on. As I passed on the news of Bill, the most common comment was "He was a person with a big heart'. I remember he always had those additional projects going on and was always willing to help one another. A great man.

Really sorry to hear of Bill's passing.  You and your family are in our thoughts and prayers at this trying time.  Bill was such an asset to the STYRON Plant during my tenure in Joliet.  You could always rest comfortably when Bill's shift was on.  He always seemed to have a positive attitude even when things were not going so well in the plant.  
I lost track of where you guys were after I retired in 2007.  I heard of Bill's passing from Doug Gallier, who we see and stay in contact with here in Midland.  He heard it from Tom Langlund and Fred Ellerbrock.
