My own father died when I was twelve, so I grew up without a father figure. When I met Rob’s family in 1987 of course I didn’t know Bill very well. The first time he said “I’ll kick your a#* to me, I was scared! Then right away he looked at me and said “ I'm just fooling with ya” and started laughing. He saw the scared rabbit face on me. Once I got to know Bill I found he’s really a big ol soft Teddy Bear. The next time he said I’ll kick your a#*, I knew it was ok to say - YEAH sure! He gave the best hugs. He’d do anything for almost anybody. He’s made so many beautiful wood pieces over the years that we have In our home and we always think of him whenever we check the time, use a cutting board, toss a salad, put jewelry away etc etc etc. He built flower boxes for me cause he knew I loved them. I could go on and on and on - Bill was a wonderful Father figure. He will be with me in my heart and prayers forever. With love and respect, Karen Schmedeke - Rob’s wife. ❤️
