    Sorry for your loss. It was always a good day when you saw him around the club house or fishing one of the ponds. We will miss him at Oak Hills.

    To my Uncle Bill, I was a flower girl at Uncle Bill and Aunt Ginger’s wedding. I will remember his sense of humor and kindness. He came from a family who experienced the hardships of the Great Depression. His success was attributed to hard work, intelligence and grit. He will be dearly missed by all of his nieces and nephews. Love from Creta Bowzer O’Holleran

    Sending thoughts and love from Iowa cousins, I did not have the pleasure of spending time with Bill , as few occasions brought us together, but have fond memories of Ginger and her siblings in our youth.

    Bill was a wonderful man and we both enjoyed the years we worked with him at Omaha Track. He always had a smile on his face and a funny joke that made your day even brighter. We will miss him dearly.

    I met Bill through his work with Omaha Track. I worked for the Union Pacific. Though I was not high up in the railroad, Bill treated me like I was. Many times I played golf with him and though we seldom did well in our 4 man scrambles, we always had fun. He will be missed.

    It was such an honor to have Uncle Bill attend our wedding a few summers ago. He was a wonderful man, so kind and hard working. I admire his strong spirit and I know he is watching over us with Aunt Lorane and my grandparents Merton and Loree!

    Bill was a wonderful man and always had a kind word for those around him. He will be dearly missed at Oak Hills whether it be in the Pub or at the pond or just driving around the club with the kids who just adored him. He was such a kind spirit and we will miss him. RIP Bill, say hello to Ginger for us. Our prayers and sympathy to your family and your many friends.
