Have gotten several messages from old friends regarding Bill’s passing. Lifts my spirits just to hear how deeply he touched their lives.
Enjoyed a visit with my brother Mike on Saturday — quietly reminiscing about our own shared experiences with Bill over the years. Our sport — amateur wrestling — is clearly special as evidenced by the many lasting friendships with personal bonds powerfully forged over a lifetime.
Bill was a tough dedicated wrestler. His senior year he wore that wrestling captaincy with pride, he led by example and he celebrated the pursuit of individual triumph.
Bill was a generous man. Not only did he convert the basement of his parent’s house into a small makeshift weight training room for himself and a few close friends. He also reached out to a number of younger athletes who needed a place to weight train over the Summer…One such Summer when I was home from Purdue Bill gave me the run of that weight room 3 afternoons a week. That generous act went a long way for me in terms of my Boilermaker wrestling career. And I just learned from Art Dietz that Bill did the same for him while he was in high school playing football and wrestling for the TPHS Titans.
As we’ve all gotten older it has gotten harder to keep in touch. But that’s commonplace. Especially when you consider the big changes like employment driving dispersed geographic relocations; the starting of our own families where we’ve reached the age of grandparent or great uncle; and sadly, ailing health and chronic disease which in fact struck Bill down leading to death before his time.
Bill you will be missed. But you left us with warm heartfelt memories to be cherished.
Rest In Peace dear friend and fellow grappler. 🙏🏻

When I think of Bill I instantly get a picture of him in my mind. Something I saw lots of times living just across the street. It’s him driving his truck up into the driveway after a long day at work. I would watch from the window as he got out wearing his white painting clothes and usually a hat. You could tell how tried he was after a long day as he grabbed his stuff from the cab and start the walk up the driveway. Often times the kids would be in the front yard and excitedly run to greet him with a hug and big smile. It always warned my heart. A hardworking, family man.
