For those of you who wrote how you remember my Dad telling his stories, holding court, cigar in hand, I thought this photo captured one of those moments.

After a round of golf at Wyndermere Country Club in Naples, the various foursomes Bill put together would gather for cigars (if you smoked) and beers (if you drank). Bill was a natural at holding court. He’d wax and wane in his unique and entertaining way and held us captive with his unique tales. My favorite was his expertise on his manual of endearments to our wives (and thus increase our love life). All of us listened intently. His logic on the subject was convincing and I quote his words “After all I’m an expert on this subject “. It all made sense to me, so that very night I tried following his exact playbook. My wife listened and then broke out in hysterical laughter, and that abruptly ended my ploy. Thanks for that Bill! An endearing man and friend who never failed to tell us each week, “I really did marry a rocket scientist!” Oh Bill, you surely will be missed and certainly never forgotten.

Bill welcomed me to his golf group when I first joined Wyndemere CC. I enjoyed our after round discussions - never got tired of being around this man.
He will be missed and fondly remembered by many; most of whom lost money to him at some point in their golfing careers!😉
A fine man!
