I have 65 years of fond memories. A lot of times we would get together and laugh about the memories over lunch at least once every two weeks. Our time together has been cut short, but memories will live on. I will miss those luncheons, but I will always have memories. Family, cling to your memories, cling to one another. Memories are forever. E.

Dear Family of Bill,

I was shocked and saddened to learn of Bill's death. We both worked at CBU, and early on, went on a few environmental sampling trips together. Later on, when I managed the hauled waste program, Bill was one of our best haulers. He was easy to work with and was a fine and honorable person. He must have been a great dad. I am so sorry for your loss.

Bill and his memory. For his family. My wife and I came to know Bill more recently in this sixty-five years. Knew him as a good man. A friendly man. A man with whom I could have very pleasant down-to-earth conversations. He made life more pleasant and helped to forget some of its ugliness. God Bless Bill Chasteen.
