Uncle Bob always went out of his way to come to Lowell to buy his auto parts from me for over 25 years. Even after I moved away in 2021 he still called me once a month just to catch up. Whenever I answered he’d always say “Is this Bill the great” which I truly got a kick out of. I just spoke to him at his birthday and we had a good chat as always. I’m saddened to hear we lost him and he will be missed. I’m sorry I can’t get back to indiana for the services but he will be in my heart and in my thoughts.
