    Bill was a good friend, and his courage and humor as he dealt with his health issues will always be an inspiration for me. He was a true gentleman, in every sense.

    My deepest sympathy goes out to his family. He is missed.

  • Richard says:

    I only knew Bill for a short time but every minute was valuable. He was tolerant of others but wouldn’t put up with any nonsense. He will be missed.

    My sympathy goes his family.

  • KD Younger says:

    I knew Bill in the early 1970’s. He was my friend and darn close to being a brother. He went too soon. He was only a few months older than I am. I was searching for him on FB and found this. Another passing I was hoping had yet to happen. God Speed, Franklin. God Speed.
