Although this may sound like a script for a TV show, I am Bill's long-lost nephew from Texas. I am the only child of Glen Cumpston, Bill's brother who passed away in 1982 from bone cancer. I was just 11 at the time. Today, I'm a happy and healthy 45-year-old married guy living in San Francisco for more than 20 years. I met Bill and his then-wife, Ramona, on two occasions. First at my father's funeral and not again until 1997. They drove down from Gerber to have dinner with me at Fisherman's Wharf. I wish we would have stayed in closer touch, but we didn't. If anyone has any nice memories of my Uncle Bill that they'd like to share, please contact me at He was actually my only connection to my father's side of the family.
