    To the entire Ware Family and friends-

    Billy was a highly respected and well thought of friend and colleague. Even when I first joined the team a few years ago, Billy was always willing to help and make me feel part of the work family. He was engaging and challenged us to get better- with that, he supported the plant’s success and that of our team members each and every day. And, he was always quick to share an important story that typically ended with us laughing as he would give me the thumbs up as he walked away. People like Billy are a treasure and he will be sorely missed.

    May God bless you all as you go through these tough times.

    My deepest condolences,

    Bill and I go back a long way, we were in the navy together. He was the best man at my wedding and I was the best man at his. He drove all the way up to Ohio to get me for his own wedding. One of my favorite memories was when Bill painted his car all up for me and my bride to get into after our wedding. He was sure that if we waxed the car we could put shoe polish on it and diesel fuel would wash the shoe polish off and it didn’t. Then on the way to the reception he tied a pair of boots to the back of the car with rope and the rope was so long that when we turned it got caught under a police car. We then got pulled over by the police in front of the reception with Bill driving and me and my bride in the back. It was always an adventure with Bill. He was a southern gentleman. He was one of the best guys and everyone he touched will miss him. My deepest condolences.
