Although Bill joined our family after I moved away from Elida, his marriage to our cousin Esther made him an integral part of our family. When we talked on the phone, he would update me on the football team at Elida, the weather, what crops were in or not in, the Elida weather, and on any neighbors that he thought I might remember. Bill dreamed of taking a road trip to Alaska after he retired. In 2003, my husband Ken and I spent a memorable six weeks motoring from Elida to Alaska and back in his new Buick. I remember Bill as always looking for ways to help his family, church, neighbors, and community. I already miss his friendly demeanor. Ken and I send our deepest sympathies to Esther and to all the McKinney family: may your memories of Bill, your faith, and the support of loved ones sustain you during this time of grief.

I met Bill when he and Esther(my cousin) were dating. All my memories of him are his kindness, gentle sense of humor and infectious laugh, his hard work and his devotion to Esther. And now he has passed into the Light and Love.
