I remember Bill coming around to our radio shop in Great Bend Kansas. He pulled up in his RV motor home and asked to be plugged in for the night. He was always a gentleman and true to his word.

Always enjoyed talking to Bill whenever he came in the store. An aspiring musician who always had an interesting story to tell. Rest In Peace my friend

I'm deeply saddened to hear of Bill's passing.  He was my mentor, one of my (ham radio) elmers and throughout my life a very dear friend.  I was a teenager when I first met Bill thru ham radio. We only lived 3 blocks apart. No matter what he was doing he'd stop and help me learn the hobby and as a result became an example of what I wanted to be as an adult. He was always happy, positive and very eager to help me and anyone he met.  I was also lucky to get to know his sons, Stan and Steve. I always looked forward to seeing them every year at the local hamfests. My sincere condolences to his family.  He will be sorely missed by me and everyone who knew him.

Stan & Sandy, Steve & Carol- my thoughts are prayers are will all of you at this sad time in your life. I have many of memories of your mom & dad. They welcomed me with open arms when I started working for Dale in the early days. I learned a lot from them and to this day, 34 years later, any time I see them they are always just the same as they were years ago. Bill always asked how I was doing and always a kind word. Your family welcomed me to Cameron and I am honored to still have you as friends. Sending hugs and love to you all. - Sandra (Sam) Spiers-Burgess
