Bill was an extraordinary man. He began his life in Prescott, Arizona in 1939.

Bill attended South Mountain High School, ASU and owned and operated Reeves Auto Wrecking in Phoenix for many years and later Reeves Auto Transport. Bill was a "fixture" in his industry and helped everyone who ever needed a hand. The hundreds of people who took part in his Celebration of Life were a testament to the man who never asked for anything for himself and was never too busy to lend a hand to others.

Bill loved sports. He played football and wrestled in school. On February 10, 2007 he and fellow wrestlers were honored at the State Championship Wrestling Match for their 50th Anniversary Celebration.

Sadly, only two weeks later, Bill died of a massive coronary, quite unexpectedly. He had been diagnosed with Type II diabetes about 17 years earlier and had worked diligently to control his disease. We have since learned that heart disease is often a tragic result of diabetes.

As Bill lived his life helping others, his family has chosen the TGen Foundation to further his legacy, again helping others. We hope contributions made in his honor will aid in the research of Diabetes and Heart Disease.

Bill will live forever in the hearts of his mother Mary, wife Susan and children Kelly, Jill, Scott and Nick, and extended family and friends.
