So sorry to hear about Bill's passing.  My sympathies go out to his family. 

Bill and I were in Homeroom  together and I remember him as humorous and a fantastic athlete.

Rest in peace!

Bill's passing tugs at my heartstrings.  He was such a big part of my sophomore year and the fun that our gang had.  I know how proud he was of his family. Comforting prayers to all of those that loved him.

Bill was one of the best. We sat together at the 25th reunion dinner where I met his beautiful wife and saw pictures of their beautiful family. He was a big part of the glue that held our gang together. I haven't seen he in many years but I truly feel a big loss with his passing. My thoughts are with his family.

I can still see Bill's smile and hear his laugh after all these 50+ years.  RIP...

I'm sorry to hear of Bill's passing. I did not know him well, but always thought him a very delightful person. I do remember his quick sense of humor and know that he will be sorely missed. My condolenses to his family and to his many close friends.

It has taken awhile to put thoughts about Bill to print. There are a lot of good memories over a long time. Bill and I went to school together, kindergarten and grade school, OP-RF and University of St. Thomas. We were pretty much life long good friends. Bill was a great guy in general. I know as I  was there. I feel the loss and miss him. He will be missed by many beyond his beautiful wife and family.
