To know Bill was to know love.

He loved his family and friends fiercely, nothing in his life was more important than family.

Bill always had a story to tell, or a joke to crack, he was quick to lend a hand or be a shoulder to lean on, no matter where he went he never met a stranger.

Outside of his family another great passion of his was truck driving, which is how he provided for them for more than half of his life. He always said driving to him was like breathing. Anyone who knew Bill knew he tinkered in a little bit of everything. To hear him tell it he was a jack of all trades, master of none. But to us he was a master at being the father, grandfather and spouse we needed him to be.

With very heavy hearts we must say goodbye to you. There is no better way than how we can all hear you say in that raspy, baritone Bill Moon voice, 10-4, message received, over and out, Blackfoot.

(Romans 10:4)
