My heart is saddened at the loss of Little Bill. My thoughts and prayers are with the family. I have many happy memories when he was a boy and am sorry I wasnt close by as he grew up to be the man he became. Im proud of his reputation in the elevator business and all the guys who worked with him and respected his work ethic. I will always cherish our time together.

REMEMBERING BILL ROGERS I MET BILL ALMOST 20 YRS AGO. I WAS A PROBY WHO JUST STARTED IN THE BUSINESS. BILL WAS RUNNING A JOB AT 1212 NORTH WELLS. I WAS A GREEN AS GREEN COULD BE HELPER. HIS WORDS L.O.L!!!!! BILL WAS CALM HE WAS PATIENT AND INSTEAD OF YELLING AT A MISTAKE HE TOOK THE TIME TO TEACH ME AND MANY OTHERS IN THE BUSINESS, IM SURE. BOTTOM LINE IS, BILL IS AND WAS STILL MY FRIEND ALMOST 20 YEARS LATER, AS HE WAS WITH EVERYONE HE MET, I WOULD HAVE TO SAY. HE WAS A MAN WHO WORKED AND TREATED OTHERS WITH RESPECT. HIS FRIENDS, HIS WORKERS AND IM SURE HIS FAMILY. I WAS FORTUNATE ENOUGH TO KNOW BILL OUTSIDE THE BUSINESS, AS WELL AS WORKING WITH HIM. BILL AND I HAD SIMILAR INTERESTS AND I AM SO GLAD BILL, JOE AND I HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO SHOOT AND EAT AT MY HOME. I ONLY WISHED WE WOULD HAVE REPEATED THAT DAY, AS WE TALKED ABOUT DOING ON MANY OCCASIONS. LIFE IS TOO SHORT. BILL WAS A GOOD MAN AND IF YOU MET HIM, YOU WILL MISS HIM.!!!!! I WORKED WITH BILL AT 3 DIFFERENT COMPANIES. HE WAS OUR BROTHER, OUR FRIEND AND AN INCREDIBLE MAN TO WORK WITH OR FOR.!!!!! MY CONDOLENCES GO OUT TO HIS WIFE AND FAMILY. SINCERELY ED HALPER

Annette and family- I am very sorry for your loss, I had the honor of working with Bill for short period. As many Elevator guys know we often get moved around a lot and work with a lot of different people, but Bill was one of a kind and a great guy. I hope you all find peace and know that he was well respected by everyone who worked with him.
