Barb and family we are sorry to hear of the passing of Bill. I can remember Bill from school and St Mark church in Rushford. Albert talks about him as his milkman picking up his milk on Wing Street in Bliss. You are in our prayers.

I was so sorry to hear of Bill’s death and extend my sympathy to Barbara and the family. Bill was a 1960 classmate and graduate of Rushford Central School. We kept in touch through the years via class reunions and at other times. I will always remember Bill as a hard working man with a sense of humor and a deep love for his family. We are in Florida for the winter so are disappointed to miss Bill’s service. Love and peace are extended to Bill’s family.
