Bill was a member of the VFW and America Legion in Gardner. He will be missed by family and friends.

He was preceded in death by his parents; the love of his life, his wife of 55+years, Elizabeth “Beth” Roberts; all of his brothers: George Pennington, Ben Pennington, Donald Roberts and Jack Roberts.
