Great memories of Bill. From Leo High School and when he and Joe and Neil started The Comets - he was great on the organ keyboard. The gathering of friends around the backyard swimming pool. From when he and I attended IPFW the first year they were open and we "majored" in golf and euchre instead of our academic studies, which got us A+ ratings with the Selective Service - which lead to Bill signing up for the Navy and me the Air Force. Our trip to Daytona Beach in his red 1965 Oldsmobile 442 for what turned out to be an extended labor Day "weekend" and a slightly diverted trip home via North Carolina just before we started our Navy and Air Force "shopping".

Bill will be missed by many - but his memory will live on.

My condolences and sympathies to his entire family.

Jerry and Diana Ream
