My thoughts and prayers are with the family. Bill was a special man that made a difference in the lives of so many. He hired me into the Farmland family in 1996. As I look at the agricultural industry even today the footprint and impact of those that Bill brought in so many years ago lives on. He is thought of often.

I had the great fortune to have been hired by Bill almost 20 years ago to work for Farmland when I graduated from K-State. From the beginning and throughout, Bill was always very encouraging and supportive and I always appreciated that. His strong work ethic and attention to detail set an example for the rest of us to follow. He touched the lives of many people in the cooperative system and agriculture in general and I was lucky enough to be one of them.

My thoughts and prayers are with the family and freinds of a great man. Bill hired me many years ago for Farmland. But more so it was his guidance and mentoring he gave I appreciated the most.

Bill was such a jewel to work with while I was at Farmland... He was always so nice and caring and involved in agriculture... He will be greatly missed because he touched so many lives...

Bill lives on in me and so many others in Agriculture in Kansas and beyond. It's hard to put into words what he ment to the development of Agriculture in the Midwest but his work in developing People touches every part of Ag in Kansas today through the countless lives he touched. Thank YOU! You are thought of daily and will be Greatly missed!

Bill was one of the very best to have worked with for so many years. His dedication, work ethic, and commitment were always top rung. His contribution to agriculture in KS was nothing short of remarkable. I still remember the very day he hired me to work for Farmland some 30 years ago. He was my friend and mentor and I'll miss him very much.
