So sorry to hear of Bill’s passing. I always enjoyed chatting with him over the years at MPW. Thoughts and prayers for Tricia and the family. Rest easy, Bill.

Sadly, because of illness I was not able to attend any services. The time that I spent with Bill at the power plant was some of my favorite times there. He truly was a good person, friend, and coworker. Gone too soon, I will miss him. My condolences to his family.

Triscia and Family - I am so very sorry that I won't be able to make it to the services this week. Bill was a one-of-a-kind guy and somebody I always enjoyed talking to. He could always give and take a good ribbing, which reminded me of my own family and always put me at ease. I truly miss having B-I-L around. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.

My sympathy goes out to Bill's entire family. Him and I grew up by each other and rode 3 wheelers and had many fun times with others in our neighborhood in the country by New Liberty. We ran into each other when our daughter swam for Linn-Mar and we were in Muscatine for a high school swim meet to find out our daughters knew each other. Cherish all the memories you have. Bill was a good guy and a good friend to many. Take Care, Rob Meyer - Cedar Rapids, Iowa

I have a lot of great memories of Billy especially when we got together at Laucamp Reunions and other family events like weddings. I know someplace in heaven he is having a beer and watching his Cardinals from the best seat in the house. Big hugs to all who were close to him. Godspeed cousin. Til we meet again.

Mary Costello on Aug 22, 2023

I will always remember the many BLT parties and the fun and laughs we all had! I hope Bill is sharing a beer with Mark in heaven tonight! Hugs!
