Bill Dowhy

Nominated by: Stephanie Farmer

Bill is one of the kindest men I know. On the day I started my first job out of college I was terrified. I moved 600 miles away from home and I didn’t know anyone in town. That day, Bill introduced himself and invited me to get lunch with him and his friends. He never once skipped a beat. He acted like he knew me forever. Ever since then Bill has continued to be that kind and generous.

He is always the first person to stand up and take action when a problem arises. He will be a shoulder to cry on. He will lend his ear whenever you need him. He’s given advice more times than I can count. He truly puts others before himself, and that is what being a gentleman is all about.
