From: Doug Wood
Relation: worked with Bill

I met Bill when I started at the Elko mill in 1985, Bill was a person who worked hard and never shied away from any job put before him. When I had opportunity to work with him on shift it was always an adventure because when you asked Bill about his scuba diving trips he was so passionate it was like you were there with him.
Some days Bill would show up for work with all that crazy hair going every which way and he would always have a smoke in one hand and a coke in the other and I would swear he just climbed out of bed.
Bill lived the single life and would cook up his signature grilled cheese sandwich for lunch at work. Well that all changed when Bill met and married Sol, as she would send him, to work with a meal. Bills family meant the world to Bill !
Calling the millwright Shop, and Bill would answer with his gruff tone “GO AHEAD” will be missed!!
RIP Bill
