I met Bill while working for National Car Rental, We were just a few doors down. My sisters and I would go out to lunch a couple times a week with Bill, Bob and a few others. That was our weekly routine for quite a while. He was one of the most fantastic and humorous people I have ever met! and had the best laugh.. I will miss him! My condolence to the family

I just heard the news of Bill's passing today and was very sad! I was his neighbor for 20 years until I moved. Bill being a bachelor and I love to cook he missed the many meals I prepared for him along with looking after his dogs when he left town. We had many laughs together ....he was a jokester and so am I. I knew his health got the best of him thought he fought it daily! My condolences to the family as he will be deeply missed. I feel he is at peace now after many health issues!!!! R.I.P. Bill !
