In Loving Memory of Bill Rada

Our beloved family member was taken from us yesterday in a tragic accident at home. Bill was our son, father, brother or uncle, and a friend to many.  We would like to provide a dignified and proper celebration of life for Bill. This will allow family and friends to pay their respects, as well as support Nic and Maddie through this very difficult time.

Cremation and a simple service is something Bill had expressed as his wishes, when that time would come. This fund has been set up to help cover the costs of cremation, a memorial sevice and other necessary expenses.

We will have the date and time for a memorial service to be held next week in Normal, IL. A family celebration of Bill's life is being planned for mid-January to be held in Davenport, IA. More details will be forthcoming.
