Bill's passion for the sport of drag racing was only eclipsed by his love of family, including the legions of fans and friends who he embraced as his extended family. We will dearly miss our friend and cherish the memories of our times together.

I met Bill at Sandusky Speedway,then at Allsport, offered me a job at Norwalk Raceway Park. What a ride, what a man, learned alot from Bill about life and about people. He brought out the best in people by trust and kind words. You wanted to work hard for Bill because he expected it and truly appreciated it. I could go on and on. Bill and Debbie and all the Baders have left a mark on My family's heart. Good bye Bill, go easy on them in heaven. Paul Cook and family
