Linda, Max, and Katie, as one that just went through this, I know that right now it is hard to think this, but he is in a better place now. None of the medical issues of the past matter anymore. He is up there running races and relaxing afterwards with a nice cold one. He was a great friend and always fun to run into and talk with. He will be missed here on earth, but he is in a much better body now and has no health issues to worry about now. Take Care and God Bless each of you.

Dear Linda, Max, Katie and all the Kutz family :
Our thoughts and prayers are with you as you grieve and celebrate the life of our friend and companion Bill.
My mind is flooded with gratitude for a life well lived and a passion for the love of Jesus Christ which Bill so gladly shared with those around him. My memory goes back to our younger days when we ran many Laurel Festival 10K YMCA races-he enjoyed them so !!
I remember the year that Bill served as scoutmaster of Boy Scout Troop 64 and his dedication to the youth of our community.
Those who were fortunate to have Bill as a teacher respected and appreciated him as one of the best. Bill famous saying " It is a great day to be alive and to be in Pennsylvania " was remembered by many.
I remember Bill best as a devoted Sunday School teacher and worship leader in the Presbyterian Church in Brookville. Bill's devotion to the love of Jesus Christ was so powerful and passionate. Bill told us that Christ had to use a ball bat on him to get his attention. I am not sure of what the nature of his exact encounter with Jesus Christ was because he only shared some of the details, but we witnessed his devotion to sharing what he experienced with all of us. His meticulous sharing of the details of his study of theology is something we all have cherished for so many years . His mind would whirl as he detailed the teachings of John Calvin and he would write endless details on the board for us to all understand. It was difficult to watch him struggle the past couple years with the disease that robbed him of his ability to perform what he loved. Bill shared with the class members that he had turned the disease over to Christ, and that he was grateful for his life, and for his family and his faith, and that he had no regrets. I last saw Bill in February in the borough truck with Dave Valosio where we shared with each other our prayers for each other and I expressed my appreciation to Bill for his witness to Christ. He has truly been an inspiration to so many and I was able shared that with Bill. May God comfort and bless you all as you grieve the loss of a great man and powerful example to us all.
In Christ,
Don and Sandy Musgrave and family

Bill was one of my all-time favorite teachers and just a great and wonderfully unique person. If the ultimate goal of any educator is to make a difference in their students' lives, then he succeeded a thousand-fold. My deepest sympathies to the Kutz family.
