Bill and I worked at Lockheed in the purchasing department and enjoyed each other's company as having some similar interest and past experiences, like cars and living in Arizona. Couldn't believe actually knew someone born in JEROME, AZ. … Although have not seen Bill since he retired, have wondered how he was doing and was very sadden to learn of his passing.

One memory like to share is how Bill "tried" to help me fix a roof on commercial building that I owned in Woodstock. As he was spreading out asphalt sealer, asked "how in the world were you able to acquire this building, but had never learned to repair roofs?" What could I say, grew up in sunny California where it didn't rain much, and so did not need this skill...
