To the Tormaschy Family: Sorry to hear of the passing of Bill. I always liked Bill, he use to make time to come and talk with me when I worked at PSI, and I use to see him at the action sales he liked to attend so much. He always seemed to be of good cheer with a friendly disposition. He was just an all-around good guy and will be missed. Guy Mischel

Dorothy and family I was so sorry to hear about Bill’s passing, so many memories, don’t know where I would start, I loved visiting with you guys at Hawks Point when I was home, talking about how he remembered me when I was a baby, then all the great times we had on branding days. I’m sending my deepest sympathies and prayers to all of you, Dorothy,I wish I could be there to give you a hug. Nancy Newton Elsey
