    Bill and Mary Ann joined St. Andrews several years ago and wasted no time becoming involved. Bill was a friendly and caring man. He will be missed by all who knew him.

    I have very fond memories of Lion Bill Roe. He inducted me into the Blessing EFLM Lions Club when I moved to Palacios and joined the club. He always had good inspiring words for me. We will miss him a lot.

    PDG Bill Roe held a special place in the hearts of Boling Lions. If we asked, he came, no matter what. We especially enjoyed his Installation of Officers ceremony. PDG Bill was so proud and excited to be the Texas Lions Camp president. And we cheered him on! Now, our hearts are with Bill's family as we all remember a most outstanding man with a generous servant heart as big as Texas! May you rest in peace.

    My memories of Bill are ones of joy, quick wit, funny and a dedicated Lion that loved our Texas Lions Camp.. I had the privilege of serving on the TLC Executive Board with an exceptional leader. I will miss him dearly. Joanna and I send Blessings to Mary and family.

    Bill was an outstanding Lion and really believed in the Texas Lions Camp. He was an outstanding President for the Camp where children had a chance to be with other children and grow in their attitudes. Bill will be missed and our prayers are with the Family.

    Lion Bill was president of the Board at TLC when I was a director and he spoke at one of our Cabinet meetings. I will always remember the golf cart he brought to the camp so he could get around the camp the year he was president of the board. He was always at the Friday night award ceremonies at the camp. May he rest in peace.

    Lion Bill Roe will truly be missed in the Lion community. He shared his wealth of experience with many of us younger Lions. I will never forget the doors of opportunity he opened for me in Lionism. Prayers for his wife Mary Ann and his family.
