Barrett and family,
We are so sorry for your loss. The world was a better place because of Bill and he will be missed by many. I know how proud of you he was and I can't imagine his pride when Colt followed in his footsteps. I remember one time when I was on the phone with Bill when we sold some calves...I think it was Winnimucca, after they sold, he told me to write that down on the kitchen wall to show my grandkids. I should have done that. I know the boys still have a note he wrote them thanking them for the money they donated from a heifer that they gave to the AABB. I'm sorry we won't be there in person, but will definitely be with you in thought and prayers.

Fred and I always enjoyed our visits with Bill. Of course I have known him for so long along with Susan, Barrett and Amy. Leta and my mother, Lou, were such good friends. Susan and I share a birth date. So many memories in all the pictures. Thank you to whomever put all those together. Bill was a true Patriot, and will be missed by so many. God’s speed, Bill. We will miss you. Merilyn & Fred Johnston

Bill once shared a story of his service in the marines to a bunch of us who stood with mouths open and eyes wide. I took that day knowing I was in the presence of a real life hero. He will be missed

Continuation: One of my earliest memories of Bill was during the 1st grade when his mother Leta and my mother Carrie made 2 birthday cakes: Bill’s was a pasture sheet cake with fencing all around the edge with cows and horses grazing and mine was a “doll cake” in a formal gown billowing from the waist. That set the tone for a lifetime friendship. Another very fond memory is when I was hospitalized at the KU Watkins Hospital (with a collapsed lung), I received a phone call from Bill who was also hospitalized in the Philadelphia Naval Hospital following his injuries in Viet Nam. Bill always had a knack for reaching out to others and that is just another example of his thoughtful ways...which led to the Beef Battalion. It was a deep privilege to know Bill; My thoughts are with all of his family and Vicky; and I will always remember his hat and his kindness.

I found out about Bill's service to our country years ago when we were loading cattle and a calf kicked his artificial leg with a loud "crack" and he just carried on with a smile. Always a joy to work with a straight shooter and his kind are in short supply. Thanks, Bill for being a friend.
