My mom Vicki, first cousin to Bill, has many fond memories of the time she spent with him. She remembers him coming to her parents to visit Lillian and Russell Luckritz where everyone sat around and had a nice visit. She also enjoyed the times he came and visited them (Vicki and Terry) when they lived in Texas. Her recollection was that he was a good man, cousin and friend.
We would like to make a donation to cystic fibrosis in Bill’s name. Please send the link to the following email.
