Bill & I lived about 1 block apart. We were classmates in grade school at St.M’s. Bill was a great guy. He was a real competitor. At the football team reunion I stood with Bill on the field. While St.V’s was practicing Bill was real edgy. I asked him if he’d like to get into the game and he ” you bet!!!”. He was the fastest man on the team. I’m so sorry for your loss!!!!………..Steve

So sorry to hear of Bill’s passing. I remember working with him at CF back in the 60’s. I used to run into him out on the highway occasionally. It was always nice to talk to him and joke about things from the past. I will remember him and his family in my prayers. God Bless You.
