Uncle Bill I have so many memories of all of us sitting around and teasing each other--then it was 4 o'clock and time for a Manhattan. I already miss your smile.

Just today we drove by the Old Drovers Inn in Dover NY and talked about the time we all stopped in at the bar with his daughter Elaine, her husband Frank, and his wife. He really loved to vintage inn and tap room built in the 1750’s. You could feel the history. We enjoy the company, good conversation and beverages. It’s a nice memory. He will be missed. Prayers to the family and friends. Jennifer and Mark O’Brien

I met Mr Ottevaere many years ago at his house with his wife and Daughters and I remained friend thought the years with Elaine and June, He lived a great life love to Golf and read that Paper. Was in Michigan several years ago and I wish I could have seen him but when I did call him we had a great conversation in the phone. He will be so missed by all those who love and cared about him. He is now with his loved wife and it is a time to rejoice for he is not in any pain. Rest In Peace.
