Bill was a fine and talented man. It was always such a pleasure to see Pat and him act in plays. A couple of extra accolades are two National Commercials; one for Mobil Oil and another for a Hearing Aid company. His most recent accomplishment was to complete a Writing course at Seminole Community College. In the past he had written a couple of short stories and enjoyed doing that very much.
Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife, Pat, two daughters, other family members and friends. May your last run be a safe one....RIP
