Relation: Friend

We were saddened to hear of Willy’s passing…we are going to miss seeing him out and about especially in the woods picking huckleberries. Such an avid outdoorsman. Willy was always a good friend even though we didn’t see each other a lot..he would just show up on occasion for a quick visit to see how we were doing and off he would go again.
Willy will be missed and to the family, Mugs, Erik and Scottie we are so very sorry for your loss and think about you every day.

I was so sad to hear this news, Willy was a super nice person, and was taken from us far too soon. My heart goes out to all of you, his dear family.
