Bill was a great colleague during my tenure with him at Amtrak. Despite our different roles, Bill was always a transparent, supportive team member at Amtrak Technologies. We shared a vital, common interest of doing things right, the first time. He was honest to a fault and equally respectful of people’s talents and roles. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family and other loved ones. He will certainly be missed.

What a fantastic guy usually only got to see him at Christmas but always upbeat and fun. I will surely miss that big smile hug and kiss...

Bill was one of the nicest guys and I always enjoyed our conversations. He was a true gentleman, and the hockey community will miss his kindness and wisdom.

Bill was a good friend. We worked together at Amtrak and he always helped me when asked. We both lived in Bucks County.
We commuted together on the train to and from work and shared an enjoyment of hockey. He and his nephews went to a game at Princeton with me a few years back. He took me surf fishing one time. I will be thinking of him the next time I go to the ocean.

He was always there for his family and his worker colleagues. I always said that when he leaves this earth that he will not have to "check in" at Heaven's gate - he will just breeze on through - because he was so giving of his time to his family.

I Remember after a few years working in the res office my husband and I had a party . Bill ended up sleeping on our couch instead of driving home. We woke up in the morning to find Bill sitting on the living room floor with our 3 year old in his lap watching cartoons on tv.
