So sorry to hear of Billy’s passing. Remember all the times we all had as neighbors in Harrisville. I enjoyed talking to him at Alumni last summer.

I especially want to give my condolences to Mrs. Robinson, (I never called her Ruby). Billy and I were childhood friends and spent many hours together in your home. As a young boy, I remember the Christmas parties that you gave for the Robinson employees at the Methodist church. There are so many memories I’d like to share. I’m sad to loose such a good and dear friend, and sorry for your loss. You and the rest of the family are in our prayers. Cliff and Sue Weese

So sorry to hear about Bill’s passing, so very suddenly. I first met him when I visited Blair in Mississippi. He was always a good friend to Blair and me. We will miss him greatly. Prayers for all his family.
