    And will be missed by many. Praying for the family to have strength in this sad time.❤🌻❤

    I worked with Bill for twenty years, he will be missed dearly. He always had a way of listening to whatever you had a problem with. He would always have an answer and a way of calming you. Fly high with the Angels my friend.

  • Wyett Silver Posted April 24, 2020 9:32 pm

    Bill and I always meet at Westroads Transit during our break from driving. We would chat about current events, sports and life. Thank you Bill for understanding and listening. R.I.P.

  • Jody Monahan Posted April 25, 2020 10:09 am

    Condolences to the Kibler family. I enjoyed Bill’s time as President of TWU 223, when he came into the office at the then Nebraska State AFL-CIO Building he would always stop and say “Hi!” and visit if he had time. Bill was a kind, big-hearted, gentle man. RIP Brother.

  • Martha Ruff Posted April 25, 2020 11:19 am

    Bill was such a great friend and we will miss him terribly. But I remind myself that we have another link to our Father in heaven. May God bless you in this time of loss,and give you strength.
    Love you,

    Much love from the cousins in Minnesota. Always fond family memories of the time spent together with Kibler Clan.

  • Victor Slape Posted April 25, 2020 2:12 pm

    Mr. Kibler was truly a great man. When he started at Metro Transit many years ago, I trained him to be a bus operator. He was one of my best students. He was a great employee, I never in all the years I worked with him heard him complain about anyone else. He was very well respected and loved as a bus operator and Union President. I He will never be forgotten. May God take him in His arms and bless his wonderful family.

  • Kerri O’Connell Posted April 25, 2020 4:31 pm

    I am so heartbroken to hear about Bill’s passing. I rode the bus from Westroads to downtown for my job and have gotten to know him over the years. He was a kind and gentle soul with amazing patience and a ready smile. The world has lost a good one.

  • Pam Watson Posted April 25, 2020 10:05 pm

    Dear Kathy and Family,
    I just want to offer my sincere sympathy to you and your beautiful family on the recent passing of your beloved husband Bill. Although I never had the opportunity to get to know him, Bridgette has shared such wonderful stories of him through the years that I have no doubt he was a remarkable human being. I know he was very patient, kind, hard working, and loving and I am sure that his death ia a tremendous loss for all of you. I pray that the Holy Spirit will give you all the strength, comfort, and peace that you need during this difficult time. May your hearts be flooded with.your best memories of Bill always and may he rest in eternal peace. God bless you.
    Love and prayers to all of you,
    Pam (Maunie’s sister).

    My sincere condolences. I had the pleasure of working with Bill at both Greyhound and Metro for over 40 years. He will be missed by many but not forgotten. Bill had a way of being the voice of reason in sometimes chaotic situations. His common sense, calm and practical nature had a way of putting everyone at ease. He was admired and respected by anyone who had the good fortune to have gotten to know him.

  • Judy A. Buono Posted April 26, 2020 8:00 am

    My deepest condolences to the family of William Kibler. He had been my MAT bus driver on numerous occasions throughout my working years, He was such a gentleman, polite and kind-hearted. He truly cared about his customers. God Bless and be with you all at this most difficult time.

  • Kris and Morris Sweat Posted April 26, 2020 10:18 am

    We are so very sorry, I pray for you all.

  • Lynda Laird Posted April 26, 2020 11:24 am

    Bill and Kathy were long time neighbors of ours on Collins Drive. Bill was always so kind to our family. Our kids played in their backyard all the time and he even gave dog treats to our dogs and didn’t mind when they followed him up and down the fence while he mowed. He made us homemade egg nog at Christmas time visits. He would invite us to their family gatherings and offered popsicles to the kids on hot summer days. We are holding Kathy and the family in our hearts and prayers. Lynda & Todd Laird

  • Ken Johnson Posted April 26, 2020 11:31 am

    I only came to know Bill through Laney family gatherings. I’m not much of a talker but Bill was an easy guy to talk with. He always made me feel like he was really interested in my life and he enjoyed talking about his. We were both from the in-law side of the Laney families. He made me feel at ease. May God bless Kathy and Bridgette and all of Bill’s family! I will miss talking to him. I would describe him as gentle and compassionate. May God rest his precious soul!

  • Dave and Karen peterson Posted April 26, 2020 7:08 pm

    I am the nurse at Metro, and Bill always, always spoke and greeted me. He was very kind and caring. He will be missed.

  • Roy Gertig Posted June 29, 2020 7:28 pm

    Wow, I am just finding out about Bill’s passing and I am truly sad for this. I always enjoyed working with Bill on Knights and Church events. He was always calm, steady, and soft-spoken, except for the time he snuck up on me with his big bus and honked his horn. Definitely a surprise! Very much a gentleman. I will miss him. Condolences to Kathy and family please.

  • Joe Hartman Posted March 12, 2024 11:08 am

    Our sincerest condolences to Bill’s family. His classmates from Our Lady of the Lake are holding a reunion in April and we are saddened to know that Bill will not be among us. He was a fine man.
