It is with sadness that we have learned of the passing this week of our friend, Bill Roell. Peggy, Andy and Garrett - we send much love to you from our home in North Carolina.

Dear Peggy: We are so very sorry to hear about Bill. He was always the guy you wanted to be around, and also the guy you wanted to be. His smart, positive, energetic approach to life was so infectious. We loved our time together in Miami, as we all learned from each other in raising our kids. That was such an important time in our lives, and he had such an influence on all of us. Love, Robin and Steve

Joanne and I are thinking of the Roell family in this dark time. Bill contributed so much to the Avon community. Over the years both Bill and Peggy have garnered the respect and admiration of our entire community for their tireless dedication and community work on so many levels. We loved Bill and his memory will stay alive in all of us.

I was lucky to get to work with Bill for many years and see his brilliant mind at work. I enjoyed sharing stories between his involvement in scouts and mine with a local search and rescue team. He took the time to care and show a personal interest in the lives of all he touched. I am deeply saddened by his loss and can only hope that the amazing legacy he has left behind will in some way be comforting to Peggy, Andy and Garrett during this difficult time. With Deepest Sympathy for your Loss.
