I remember Bill from JV football and several classes we had. He was a fun guy. He always had a humerous comment about what ever the topic was. I'm so sorry to hear of his passing. His family is in my thoughts and prayers.  Brian Green

Bill was always a fun loving guy. What a blast it was to work with him on the 20 year reunion committee.  My prayers are with his wife and family.
