First I would like to offer my condolences to Bill’s family. I have known Bill for over 10 years. We worked on a model A and did succeed in get it running again. He went with me to test drive a Harley Davidson in Port Saint Lucie. We took a ride around lake Okeechobee with his brother on the motorcycles. He was an avid Texas Hold’em Poker player, and he enjoyed his weekly visit to Golden Corral. RIP
