Uncle Bill was a big part of one of the happier times of my life. Very nice, always called me "Slick" and he always had, in the eyes of a child, really cool "toys". He always seemed to have a quiet confidence. I know one of the best moments of my recent years was standing beside him when they asked veterans to stand up at a concert. Excellent person, I'm grateful to him and my Aunt Pat for the kindness they showed my Mom and all of us kids. Thank you Uncle Bill, rest easy and know you were loved by many.
