Bill was one of a kind and knew no stranger. He made me feel welcome from our first meeting. You will be missed, my friend. Rest well and fly high.
Joanne. I’m so sorry for you loss. Love you.
May you soar with Angel’s. May your life beyond fill your heart an soul with nothing but love. You were and always be loved and missed by all.
Bill was a good friend if mine in school. He was a good guy for sure. Saw him when he sold the house across the street from my house not long ago. We got to talk at that time. He talked about his wife and family the entire time. He Loved them dearly! Loved hearing him say positive about them all.
Prayers to his wife Joanne and children! May God wrap his arms around each one of you for comfort and strength..
RIP MY FRIEND!!
So sorry to hear a Bill’s death. Prayers hugs and love.
So sorry to hear of his passing. We have worked together for over 35 years. I will miss his calls when he had a question and will always remember him with fond memories. Rest In Peace Bill
Johnnie and I send our love to the entire family. We have fond memories of fun times over the past years. When Ethan sang in the choir at Powers Church , we all enjoyed him being there with us. Sorry we lost contact over the past few years but moved away due to age and missed seeing all of you. Our sincere sympathy to all of you..
Billy Rutledge, as we remember you from Brown& Williamson. I remember you and “Cat Stevens” ala Richard Jordan, and the fun we had at work. You made work fun, can’t post details. You loved your nice vehicle, can’t remember which kind, but that was your pride and joy.
Also the time you talked with Elvis Presley as Elvis was going down the highway, a few months before Elvis died, another high in your life. I can’t recall the connection with the Daulton family from Wilsons in Dinwiddie, but you remember Jimmy Daulton eating breakfast at some ones home in Dinwiddie.
I haven’t heard from you since the early 1980s but haven’t forgotten you. Cat Stevens passed a few years ago, you 2 are together now, having a good old time. Your friend Duncan Liles
Joanne, Praying that the Lord comforts you and your family during this difficult time
Prayers to you and your family during this hard time.
Thinking about you- please call of you need anything… Sending Love, Hugs, and prayers.
Bill Rutledge left a Legacy of his own during his 40+ Years in the Real Estate Profession. The Love he had for his Wife,Joanne, and Son, Ethan, was extremely strong and forever lasting. May we always remember Bill, the Man, his gifts of LIFE, JOY, forgiveness and LOVE. I am so very sorry Joanne, for your loss. GOD BLESS YOU and Ethan.
