Bill will be missed by us. It was certainly a pleasure to visit with him and knowing he was familiar with New Castle area since I am also. Bill was very ind and knowledgeable on many things. He was “Grandpa Bill” to our 4 grandchildren who live in Warren. Bill attended many family holiday dinners and family celebrations or was always welcoming us to his home. He shared much of his life experiences and educated many on various conservation issues. Bill was happy to get my father’s wood lathe machine and tools after my own father passed. We were heart broken to learn of Bill’s passing. Please accept our deepest sympathy and know Bill was much loved by many.

He will be missed !!
When I come to the end of my journey and I travel my last weary mile, Just forget If you can, that I ever frowned and remember only the smile.
Forget unkind words I have spoken; Remember some good I have done and remember I had loads of fun.
Forget that I have stumbled and blundered and sometimes fell by the way. Remember I have fought some hard battles along the way,
Then forget to grieve for my going, I would not have you sad for a day, But in summer just gather some flowers and remember the place where I lay.
And come in the evening when the sun paint the sky in the west, Stand for a few moments beside me and remember only the best of Wild Bill Repasky.
