Also met Bill at UPJ and found him to be a great guy. I am so glad we had the opportunity to reconnect in the last year or so. Peace to all.

I met Bill while teaching his sons Power Mechanics @ JHS. Over the years, I got to see just how fine of a person he was, but his "legacy" of two, smart, energetic, honest, and self reliant adult sons will continue to tell more about him than I can put into words. May God bless you Buddy.

Dear Chris, Scott, and family,

You have my sincere condolences on the passing of your Dad, Bill. I will be thinking of you all these next difficult days and pray that you have the strength you need. I was reminded about when you were small and I would babysit and your Dad would give me a ride home. That was a long time ago! Love to all. Deb

I met Bill when I was in 7th grade. He lived next door to my best friend. Think we called him "Little Billy" then. Then my husband and I reconnected with Bill about 15 or so years ago. He had such a great sense of humor and was a really nice guy. Our condolences to his family
