    Knew Bill when he was a State Trooper and Deputy Sheriff. Great man and good friend. Had a good time working together with him. If another officer needed help you could always count to on Bill to be there. Retired Police Chief Terry Soden

    I knew Bill when he was a State Trooper living in Wayne. He was like family to my parents, Andy & Marion Manes and always looked out for myself and my twin sister Patti, as teenagers in the 70’s there was a lot of trouble to get into but we always knew Bill had an eye on us. We were there for him through his most difficult times and he was there for us during our most difficult time, when Andy passed away. Bill commanded respect wherever he went, had a heart of gold and will be dearly missed.
