We were sorry to hear of the passing of Bill “Hi-Pockets”; while we didn’t know his family, my husband Bob and his father, also “Bob Watson” both worked with him at Hudepohl Brewing Co. My husband tonight said, “what a great guy he was!!”
Our thoughts and prayers are with the whole family!!
I am so sorry for your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
My thoughts and prayers are with you as you say good bye to your loved one. Father, Grandfather, Great Grandfather and best friend.. Love you all.
So very sorry for your loss.
Sorry to hear that you lost Bill and didn’t know Blanche had passed also. I thought very highly of both of them. I lived across the street for almost 10 years and they were great neighbors to have and great people to know. My heart and prayers go out to your entire family as I know that their children and grandchildren were their world but I know Bill is glad to be able to be with Blanche again
Sorry for you lose. Your family will be in my families prayers.
