  5. Carolyn,

    Was saddened to hear of your tragic loss. Bill was a solid
    person who told it like it is. I’ll miss seeing him at his
    Murrells Inlet pig roast.

  6. I am so sad to read about Bill’s passing. He taught me how to waterski when he and Carolyn were our Luther League Sponsers. When I started working for Dickinson ISD it was a joy to see both of them. I am not sure other’s realize what an asset they both were to our District. Bill managed what the contractors were doing for the construction of KEL, BMS, part of the DHS renovations, and the ESC building. And many more projects. Many times I ran into him after 10pm, as our technology team were doing our thing and he was inspecting buildings. He will be greatly missed. Carolyn, my deepest condolences to you, your kids, and Grandkids.

  7. Long ago memories of our many years together coaching the Dickinson Soccer League team our girls played on. Lots of fun and frustration. Coach Bill’s calm encouragement and praise was just what was needed to keep playing sports a fun experience for the girls. The Dickinson Gremlins hardly ever won a game, but we had a full roster of 18 every year.

    May you be comforted by your memories of Bill.
