I am blessed that I got the chance to work with Bill Phelan. I am blessed to have had the opportunity to learn from him and receive his mentorship. There are so many wonderful things I could say about Bill professionally such as his passion and dedication for his work, it was obvious to anyone who had the chance to work with him. Beyond all those professional accolades Bill was a very gentle, thoughtful, and caring man, with a very quick wit. I will always look up to Bill as an example of a good man and a consummate professional. May God bless his soul and provide his family with peace.

My thoughts are with the Phelan Family. I only knew Bill on a professional level, but his enthusiasm stuck with me, even years later as I write this message. He was such a knowledgeable man, a pleasure to work with, and will be missed. Zach Kates (fellow Civil Engineer)

I met Bill Phelan in 1990. At that time, we were starting GMS, nobody knew us, and we needed more work. Bill volunteered to help us. He went over our concrete specifications and gave us a lot of advice and guidance about how to prosper and do better concrete projects. As we did more work, we saw more of him. He was always positive, always answering our questions always a helping hand. We did not thank him enough. His presence made the world a better place, and knowing that his spirit is at peace alleviates our sadness.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.
