Does a good man's life end at his death?

The answer for daughter Lisa Reinicke was, "No." Her father was known by many

names: Buster, Bill, Billy, Dad, and the Football Flyboy. His deeds, no matter how small,

should be passed down to family, friends, and anyone looking for inspiration, and

life-lessons from one who worked, lived and part of the Greatest Generation. The

Football+Flyboy+was young, newlywed and a pilot in WWII. He was a good man.

One weekend morning, she determined that his spirit should not stay silent just because

his mouth could no longer speak words. "I open my dad's old air force footlocker - still

solid, battleship grey, weathered, and a little rough from travel and age. His name is in

white lettering on the front: First+Lt+William+R+Cannon +"

What she discovered were yellowed envelopes bound in twine - hundreds of them - that

her father had written to her mother. Letters written daily during the last year of WWII

and received by his bride. Her daily letters disappeared - only three times during the

year, did the "mailman" catch up with him and teased with just a few of the hundreds.

"Before reaching inside, there was a feeling of the hands of time grabbing onto my heart,

knowing that this was such a huge part of not only his life but my mom's as well."

Meet Bill "Buster" Cannon, the Football Flyboy ... a good man with a good life who made

a difference.
