Bill Cooksey

We send our best wishes to the family of Bill Cooksey, Deputy Director of Shreveport, who passed away after an extended and very tragic illness.

Bill was a special friend of BGI, both as a client and personally. A very giving person and a contributor to his community, was constantly and actively involved in all manner of charity events in the region and for his church. He also was a superb airport administrator, who was invaluable in guiding SHV through some challenging times.

As a friend, Bill and our CEO shared a passion for classic cars, and he assisted in locating a rare ’79 Dodge Little Red Express pickup for us, and then helping with finding parts and accessories. Today, that truck is garaged in our office building and is now our reminder of a man who constantly was looking to help others.
