    May God find a good place for him up there..

    I believe he worked for North American Aviation, had some great stories about flying the P51 Mustang and then the F86 Sabre, couple planes any pilot would give their left nu* to fly

    Ode to Texas Bill



    The Heights' rat-packer who never suffered fools gladly
    The Katy prairie man-o-war
    Yes, you, you giant of a man
    You bring your wisdom to our land

    After years at Rosa's cantina
    Where you drained (or not) that whiskey river
    On your way to San Antone
    And back to watch the Tyler Rose

    Your wide eyes often feasted
    On the LaGrange bluebonnets
    Your palate plenty-pleased
    By New Braunfels' brave Bavarians

    Although Hank never done it this way
    With blue eyes cryin' in the rain
    It's so hard to comprehend
    Why you had to walk away

    But
    You served long and well
    On Sam Houston's grand ole dream
    It's high time we recognize
    Texas' gift to the DR

    We love you, Texas Bill
