A long time friend and neighbor. Will miss seeing you outside in the worm months smoking that cigar, Gene coming over with a chew in his mouth and the memories of “the old days”. Oh the problems you two could solve. Things change. Gene and I will miss
You Bill. Love to the family. Give Mildred a hug from the Oswalt’s.

I met Bill Benton my first day in Law School at the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa in June of 1958.В  Bill was 10 years older than me, married with 4 children.В  Both of us had been avid supporters of John Patterson for Governor.В  We became best friends and that friendship has lasted for 61 years.В  I watched Kaye, Susan, Billy and Jenny grow up to become outstanding citizens in their own right.В  Millie taught school and Bill worked at several jobs while he was in law school.В  Bill wanted to be a lawyer more than anybody I have ever known. Bill was a solid husband and father, a good lawyer and successful district attorney.В  I will miss Bill. SONNY HORNSBY
