Obituary

It is with great sadness and despair and the deepest of sorrows that we lost dear Bill, there shall be no more tomorrows. But it's with great dignity and pride. I must to you all say how many he has touched and given in every way. It was never about the cancer, he had a determination and plight and though hard as he tried last night he lost his fight. Know that Bill was ok with having cancer "it is What is" his motto throughout. Never faltered from moving forward. Kept him going without a doubt. Although he had cancer it wasn't who he was he persevered longer than we thought that's just what "Bill Abel"...

Know that Bill was ok with having cancer "it is What is" his motto throughout. Never faltered from moving forward.
Kept him going without a doubt. Although he had cancer it wasn't who he was he persevered longer than we thought
that's just what "Bill Abel" does. You loved him or you hated him there was no inbetween, but you know where you
stood with him the man said what he means. Know he cried his last day of work, what truly kept him going, but for far
too long he pushed it the pain was finally showing. Bill passed in my arms. But now he can find rest. I've never known
anyone so determined to always give his best. Thanks to all who loved Bill. Your thoughts and prayers touched our heart.
Know his spirit is still with us. Things Bill Abel will always be a part.
