Sorry to hear of Bill's passing. He and I were close friends for several years in grade school at St. John's. We shared a love of model airplanes and other hobbies of the time, spending many fun hours at the house on Hartzell Street. I received updates on Bill in later years from Fran when I'd see her at the Northcrest Bowling Alley (our leagues were side-by-side). Great memories. My sincere condolences to the family.

Bill and I were coworkers a long time ago and had lost touch. He was always friendly, kind, and personable. I'm saddened to learn of his passing and offer my condolences and peace to his family and friends.
