  • "Dr. Plavcan and Bill's family: "Billy" was a student of my sister in English Class in 1975. She called him Billy and always said how nice he was. When my sister experienced a stroke in May of 1977, Bill asked Dr. Plavcan to look in on her at Wash Co Hosp and tell him how she was getting along and Dr. P visited her often. I met Bill when she was considering Loyalton. My aunt was living there at the time and Bill graciously gave me a tour. He was very pleasant to me, and my sister was happy I had finally met him. God's word says,"My grace is sufficient for thee..." My prayer for you all is God's comfort and peace now and in the days ahead. Blessings!! "

  • "Bill and I were close friends (and freshman dorm neighbors) during his time at Ohio Wesleyan University in the late 1970s. While we hadn't been in touch for quite a while, I always remembered his easy laugh, his knack for meeting new people, and the fun we had on a few trips together -- once to his home in Hagerstown and once to fish for largemouth bass (unsuccessfully) somewhere in Central Florida. Sounds like Bill stayed as vital and full of life up until the end ... he will be missed. My sincere condolences to the Plavcan family. Rod Willis"

I am deeply saddened personally and want to tell you we will keep the Plavcan family in our thoughts and prayers.Words are inadequate for this moment. Our Love to You All, Vaughn and Cindy Crowl"
