  1. All my love and sympathy to Bill's family. I have wonderful memories of trips to Fairview to visit all the cousins. Bill was the football "hero" and my parents and I watched many football games in Fairview. Bless you all. Viki Sarff

  2. I was fortunate to have Coach Eubanks as a history teacher,coach, and friend. He was always a fair,friendly,even-tempered and helpful man. I enjoyed traveling to track meets with him, Ford Falcon loaded with track equipment.(In the 1971 yearbook I`m in a picture with Mike- taping someone`s ankle, I think) Coach Eubanks left a lasting impression on me by simply being who he was, and though it has been some years since seeing or talking with him, I will miss this good man and friend deeply.

    I enjoyed working in the Bus ministry at Calvary Baptist Church while he and Robin was members. My Aunt Lucy Cunningham was married to Russ Cunningham who was Bill's mother cousin but I never knew Bill until our later years.John P. Lock
