Bill and I exchanged emails and talked at various political events often. We knew each other since 2004 and were in two of the same political groups. He was a truly committed progressive who always wanted to know what was going on and what he could do to help the cause. Wherever he is now on his journey Bill would be most unhappy that he died before he had his chance to vote against Donald Trump's re election. Bill was one of the best and nicest people I knew in local political circles and I will miss him

To Bill's family,
New York was so fortunate to have Bill Sharfman. We met each other through politics, Howard Dean's campaign. He was brilliant and funny. He was involved in our group, Democracy for NYC. I could always reach out to him by phone or email to get his honest opinion on something.
Best,
Tracey Keij-Denton

Bill, you left us too soon. Your strength of character, dedication to nature, support of humanity, energy and passions for standing against tyranny,...all so admirable. I will always remember your love of travel and exploration, your thirst for knowledge, your adventuresome nature and your great stories about your experiences and family history. You stayed true to important things in life and nature. May you know you are respected and cared about by many. Memory eternal, friend of over 20 years, until we meet again.
