Mr. D was one of the best bosses I ever had. I was his secretary at FAMC for 10 years. He had a gentle spirit and kindness not often found these days. Prayers to Barb and family. He is now at peace with his beloved Ruth.

My uncle Bill was a special guy. I remember his warm, outgoing personality and that big smile and friendly voice. He always seemed to be up for an adventure and had so much youthful energy…. playing tennis, golf, ping pong or water skiing.

I’ll never forget the vacations our families took together. During the 60s and 70s, Bill, Ruth and Barb would pull their boat and meet us in the Ozarks, for a week of camping and boating. What great memories.

Bill had a generous heart as well. When I was in junior high, I recall him giving his time for two boys he sponsored serving as their big brother. As Ruth’s health, deteriorated later in life, Bill was so faithful attending to her at the nursing home.

During my college years in Omaha, I worked for a delivery company and one day when I passed through Fremont, I decided to stop by Bill’s office at the hospital just to say hello. When his secretary notified him I was there for an unannounced visit, he immediately dropped everything and invited me in for a chat. He was always so welcoming …… he always made me feel like I was his special nephew.
