  1. My sweet Bill, you were an amazing husband and father to both Debi and Jason. You also were the best friend to me as we shared our love for Debi and Jason. You will be forever in my heart and forever missed.
    Cindy Ashton (Debi’s sister)

  2. Bill was a super sweet man that I had the fortune to care for in the last 4 months. He had such a calm about him, handled any problems that came around, usually with a smile. I never heard him raise his voice. He will be truly missed. In our thoughts and prayers.

    1. Thanks so much for your care for Bill. I know he appreciated all your care along with the whole staff there.

  3. I only remember Bill from my childhood when he was a student at CU, and he was friends with my mother. I am now 61, so that was a long time ago. I remember him as a very nice man that was willing to interact with me. Not all adults interact with kids as well (if at all) as Bill did. So I have fond memories. We were able to reconnect via email a few years ago. My condolences to all who loved him.
