Bill was just the kindest person. He had a smile that would light up the room. His laugh was something that would make you laugh. You knew it was Bill even if you didn’t see him because of his booming voice. His love language was acts of service for others. He just plain loved to help others. Bill was also an avid St. Louis Cardinals fan. He was a member of the United Methodist. Bill loved the Sparta Community Chorus and loved to perform.

He is survived by his sister, Susie of Aledo; brother, Tom (Amy) Glenn of Monmouth, Illinois; one step-son, Mark; one step-daughter, Kristin; two brother-in-laws, Eugene and Floyd (Mary) Higgerson; several nieces and nephews; and his beloved dog, Elvis.
