Bill and I flew together at the Huntington airport back in the late 70’s. He was a great guy, and one of my best flight students. Sincerely, Barry Grant

The memory of Bill as a coach on the Oilers for PAL football. Later, coaching with him for the Bears. Tremendous dedication to the youth of our community thru this program.
