    Kathy, I was blessed to have known Bill from the first event I attended after moving to Colorado to be part of the meetings industry over 20 years ago. He was always introducing me to others in those early days as he had such a strong network of friends and colleagues. We will all miss Bill and our thoughts are with you and your family as you get through this tough time.

    I first met you almost 20 years ago when I worked at the Adam’s Mark, and so enjoyed working with you the 16 years I have been at the Convention Center. Every time I would see you I was greeted with a wonderful smile and big hug. Thank you for your kindness and helpfulness all of these years. God Bless you and your family, love and prayers.

    Hey Bill,
    Always a smile on your face and a hug in your heart. Your family and friends will miss you.

    Dearest Kathy and Family,
    Your husband and father always greeted people with a smile and respect. His success in business and family dedication is a true testimony of his life’s legacy.

    We all will miss him.

  7. Jennifer Fiske says:

    Dear Bill!
    I will never forget his bright smile, his big glasses under his big cowboy hat at the NFR, and the bandstand he built for a show we did together.
    See you at the show Up There, Bill!
    Love to the family,
    Jennifer Fiske

    Kathy, As a new comer to Brede, Bill was always welcoming and a pleasure to work with! There was never a day without laughter in this office with Bill’s sense of humor and just inspiring attitude.

    My deepest condolences to your family at this time!

    I’ve lost a very dear pal and will always miss his bellowing
    laugh; positive attitude and love and compassion he gave to
    everyone he met. We had many heart-to-hearts over a “very rare” scotch and he would either say “suck it up and
    deal with it” or give some well needed advice. My thoughts are with Kathy & family. God Bless you, Bill – we miss you.

  10. Richard Scharf says:

    Kathy and family,
    My heartfelt condolences go out to you and your family. I have had the great fortune of working with Bill for the last 20+ years. He always treated everyone with respect and was a pleasure to be around. Bill always supported VISIT DENVER and will truly be missed. I am honored and blessed to have known Bill. Warmest Regards, Richard Scharf

    Kathy and family,
    My heart goes out to all of you. Bill was the most genuine, kind man I’ve ever known ( even with his feistiness) and will be truly missed by everyone who had the honor to meet him. Please let me know if you need anything.

    You’re in my thoughts and prayers,
    Tammy Coffin

    Kathy, I was shocked to hear the news about Bill. He was an incredible person. But you knew that. Our dinners in Denver and his visits to Vermont were always times I looked forward to. Needless to say his business ethics and customer service exceeded anything I had ever experienced in my 30 years of doing shows.

    My thoughts are with you, David Whitmore
