We served as assistant professionals around the same time. Both of us had good 9hole head pro positions for many years in N.J. He was my neighbor in Lincoln Park. Good guy

My deepest condolences. Played enough golf with Bill through many years in NJ and was always entertaining...a lot of laughs, clubs tossed :) and some good golf. Always fun to be with!
