I knew Bill at Fresno High, class of '61. Easy to recall images of him! Bill was a good and trustworthy friend, cheerful in nature, and my memory-image of him after all these years is of a smiling, energetic person whom I enjoyed being pals with. May his memory be as a blessing for his family! -Writing from Mill Valley, CA.
