Even though Bill was a Chief Machinery Technician at Reserve Unit New London, he ran the administrative unit with the capabilities of any Master Chief Yeoman. I last saw Bill , seems like forever, at a Hartford Whalers game. He was an avid fan and tried to convince me to buy a season ticket. He always had a friendly face and was the go to guy when anyone in the unit had an administrative problem. Fair winds and following seas my friend.

I served with Bill in the Coast Guard, and a more dedicated person I have never met. He did a thankless job, keeping our unit going, and I would at least have gone to his funeral if there was one. I was surprised to hear of his passing.
Whenever there was a problem, going to Bill meant it would be resolved, no fuss. He was one of those people just doing their jobs that you never realize how well until he is no longer there. Thank you, Bill! You were an outstanding Coast Guardsman.
