Master Bill – Invitation to Celebration of Life

MARION, Kan. – Posted at the requst of Master Bill1909 beloved slave, whoknows;
“Would you please share the info posted for the Celebration of Life for Master (Bill1909)…. Everyone EVERYONE who knew Master is invited. …”

Services for Master Bill, Kansas,

First off, I would like to take a moment on behalf of his Family and Leather Family, and thank every one of you who have extended your love, kind words and support to his family. It has been appreciated and we feel truly blessed. THANK YOU!

We would like to invite all friends, extended family and anyone who’d love to have an all day celebration in honor of Master Bill, June 6th from 11 a.m. until ???. The Family decided to celebrate his life in style at the lake where he loved to camp and live the good life. We will be located at the Group Camping site across from the swimming area at Cottonwood Cove at Marion Reservoir. There is room for campers and camping if you’d like to join us. Cost to camp is $17.00 a night payable at the guard shack as you enter.

The meal will be in the evening. We are not sure about that exact time but we’re thinking about 5 or 6. His Family will be providing the meat for dinner but ask if you are coming for dinner to please bring a side dish, it would be appreciated. Table service will be provided. It will be a BYOB occasion (please keep your cans/bottles in the trash) but tea and water will be available.


1. A LAWN CHAIR (There are some picnic tables but not enough seating for everyone.)
2. GOOD HAPPY THOUGHTS AND LOTS OF GREAT STORIES (Because that’s how he’d want it)
3. NON-PERISHABLE GOODS (What better way to cherish and celebrate a great man than to help others who he’s always enjoyed helping). This is also a great way to show your sympathy in lieu of flowers. This kind gesture keeps on giving.
4. Since this is held at a public camping ground and his Blood family will be there too, please keep it civil!! As Master Bill would say, we don’t want to scare the vanillas they might wanna join us…

We’ve been informed that this event in itself could be bigger than we’d thought. So…since we don’t want to run out of food, we would love it and appreciate it if you would give us an RSVP on the event page by Thursday.
It will help us out more than you know!! Thank you in advance!!!

Burial Services for Master Bill will be Sunday, June 7th at 1:00 p.m. at the Marion Cemetery in Marion, Kansas.

Come help us celebrating life and wishing a great man a wonderful journey knowing we all will see him again one day. May he always lift your spirits when you think of him and how he always got the last word, loved you, cared for you and will always be with you!
Much love… Master Bill Family
