    Pat and family-
    I was truly saddened to hear of Bill’s passing. He was a wonderful man, a great sport, willing and useful for just about any task, and a lot of fun to be around. He helped me a lot when I bought my first house back in 1977. He bought a lovely swing for my front porch and installed it, which I greatly appreciated and used. I enjoyed running into him at park volunteer events and just a couple of years ago at a senior luncheon and always felt better after talking to him. He was a wonderful example of a life well lived and many people will miss him. My condolences to you all.
