great deal in their retirement years.
Bill was a member of Mountain View Christian Center. He spent many hours along
with a number of others as the new church was built in the late seventies. The Royal
Rangers ministry (“boy scouts” of the church) was a major joy of his life, training, and
teaching boys. His travels took him on Mission trips to several countries to share
God’s love and see God’s wonders of the world.

In life's eventide, at twilight, at his door I'll knock and wait; by the precious blood of
Jesus, I shall enter Heaven's gate.
