I was sad to hear of Bill's passing, he was a very good friend. I was lucky to work with Bill at Northeast on a tremendous counseling team. He was always patient, kind and very knowledgeable. We helped a lot of kids and managed to have a few laughs along the way. A lot of students and staff are better for having known Bill, and I know I am one of them. While Bill was here, he made a difference.
He will be missed.

Bill was a calm and considerate counselor as he worked with students at Northeast High School.
I appreciated his professionalism as I interacted with him regarding students in the classroom.
My sympathies to the family as they have lost a "good one".

I was so sad to hear of Bill’s passing. We are currently in the Canadian Rockies and I remember fondly our CO Rocky Mountain trips-biking, ice cream pit stops, s’mores, CB radio joking, and the “broom game”. Our sincerest condolences and prayers for your family.

Dear Wrightsman family,
I’m so sorry to hear of your sudden loss. I was a counselor and worked with Bill at Lincoln Northeast for quite a few years; we had an excellent team then with Nancy M as our leader.
Bill was extremely gracious, compassionate and hard working. I admired his ability to handle the toughest of situations with a gentle smile and a calming manner.
I’m so glad we were able to all have lunch last summer when Marilyn and George were in town. My love and prayers to you, Judy, and to all of your sweet family.
Fondly, Jan Brown
