Condolences

Condolence From: Mary Draper
Condolence: WCJ jr was the older of my two brothers. I have always called him Bubba since I couldn't say Culbert when I was little. I finally started calling him Bill when I was much older and after our father WCJ sr who also went by Bill had passed. I did like his other moniker Jesse as his RR buddies called him too. He was out of the house when I was still very young, gone to war but I didn't understand that at the time. He called me peanut and I liked that. It was always exciting to me when he came for a visit and for my family but our mother was especially sad too. His leaving again was very hard. He would work on his little car an MG and I would play along side. I loved to ride in it too and on his motorcycle with him. Our mom did not like that very much. When he married Jill, I liked the idea bc it meant another girl in the family. He would still try to include me in activities and I liked going to the beach the most. Then when they had 2 daughters Stacey and Nancy, I also got some little playmates. I finally moved away to go to college but would always see Bill and family when I came home. It was really hard when our dad died suddenly. I remember taking Stacey and Nancy trick or treating to try to keep things normal. Thank goodness Bill and family were were in Jax for our mom. I eventually got married and had a family too, so we were all busy. I didn't come to Jax a lot or talk to Bill much until Mom got sick. But after she passed, I think we kind of reconnected with Louis and each other. We'd talk about the kids and trips we each were taking. Later I talked to him about his cancer too. I really miss our talks but know Bill is not in pain and with the Lord and our parents, talking up a storm as we say. RIP Bill, love Mary

Condolence From: Greg Chambers
Condolence: I met Bill over 21 years ago, when I asked him for his permission to marry his daughter, Stacey. I will never forget the moment when I asked him that big question.
When I asked him, he paused for several seconds and said, "Well, the trap has been sprung." He looked at me and said, "yes." From that point on, Bill welcomed me into his family and treated me like a son. Bill, would later become known as "Pops" by my two daughters, Carson and Campbell. He filled their lives with so much joy and laughter and he filled their hearts with so much love. They love you so much "Pops" and those two girls are so blessed to have had you in their lives. I know they will always remember your various sayings and slogans and especially all of your jokes. Pops was a great grandfather and a example to us all about the meaning of love. I can never thank him enough for everything that he has done for my family. I have many memories and stories that I will cherish and share with others. We Love you Pops.

Of course, the most famous story of all, was the Itunes gift card story at CVS during Christmas one year. Bill had an ipod. Over the years I had added several hundred of his favorite songs from the past. He wanted to update and add songs to it from time to time. That was always my one task to complete for him, when he visited. This is where I first heard the slogan, What a Rub?" When we got to my truck in Blue Ridge after purchasing the Itunes card, all he had was the receipt. I said, "where is the itunes card?" Bill said, "this is all they gave me!" Bill thought, CVS had lost his card that he had just purchased for $20.00 and now it was missing. We looked everywhere for this card, so Bill goes back into the store to ask for a refund. I was looking around in the parking lot for the card. After several minutes, Bill exits CVS after arguing with the manager for a refund and I say, "did you find it?" He says, "no, they got my 20 bucks and lost my card and now they will not do anything about it!" WHAT A RUB!" When we arrived at my house, I found the card between the seat and the console. Bill had been convinced by Jill to get a bag in the future to avoid this issue. We have laughed about this story for years.

We (Greg,Stacey, Carson, and Campbell) Love you very much and we will miss you. We know that you will be in our hearts forever. We were so Blessed to have you in all of our lives. So long for now, I know we will all meet up again one day. We love you!

Condolence From: shirley chambers
Condolence: Heartfelt condolences to Jill, Stacey, Nancy, Carson, Campbell and Greg. Bill was such a blessing in our lives he was a wonderful father-in-law to our son Greg. Greg loved him deeply and We know for sure Bill felt the same toward him. That is a love that is untouchable. We loved Bill too, that incredible sense of humor and always showing concern for other people. He enjoyed life and that is a lesson we should all learn from him, whether it was enjoying that smoked turkey leg at Christmas or jetting off abroad it was all great to Bill no matter how small or how big. We love you Bill. Rest my friend. Shirley and Dan Chambers

Captain kangaroo War movies. From ww2). Culbert was a serious world war 2 follower , knew a lot about these years and loved all subject matter covering this era . Culbert may have wished he was born in time to b in this world struggle . Growing up in the west side of Jacksonville (Park st area). He was a great athlete was. "All sandlot". In baseball, football several years , we all wanted him on our team . We played allot of golf together at Brentwood golf course (gone now) on Saturday 's. Our mom would drop us off at 7-8 am. Pick us up at dark , was a lot of fun we ate chili dogs and used water balls on holes where we had to clear a water hazard . There are many more stories like this I can recall easily . One more. Playing baseball at fish weir elementary school. Culbert was going back. Way back to catch a deep fly ball. Reached up to catch ball and caught his finger on the top of the wire fence cut open his finger I raced to help him and we went to a house near by (did not know them ) to call our mom. I was panicked to hurry come quick culbert is hurt bad . My dad always said the doctor did not do a good job left a bad scar . Closing this short tribute to my brother William culbert james , we talked all the time on the phone these last 20 years ( I live in Houston) did not always agree on subjects But I salute you forever. One more story please. Culbert was about 16 and my dad asked him to change the oil in his maverick car After 10 minutes he came inside the house and said to my dad is the oil red??

Condolence From: Judy Bell and Family
Condolence: Heartfelt condolences to Jill, Stacey, and Nancy in the loss of Bill, a good husband and father. As a brother in law, Tom and I loved spending time with Bill because we so enjoyed his dry humor and political viewpoints. He will be greatly missed. Please express our sorrow to the granddaughters also, as I know they will feel the great loss of their grandfather and to Bills extended family. Prayers for strength and healing for you all.
