I was saddened to hear about the passing of Bill. He was a wonderful man and the times I spent at the Conners’ house were some of the best memories from my childhood.

I was saddened to hear of Bill's passing but Bill I have to say that you and your family have been missed long before your passing. I have nothing but great memories of you, shooting hoop in my driveway and swimming in our pool during the summer with us kids from the neighborhood and I even remember walking with you and my Dad down town to North Main street in Brockton to watch kung Fu movies at the old cinema. I also remember you taking me to a Patriots snow game in early December back in 83 which we won 7 to nothing against the Saints but back then they were the Aints. I will also never forget when we went to a preseason game of the Celtics after winning the title just a few months earlier. I also remember you and your wife making the street I grew up on safer by making it a one way which it still is 30 years later I am told. So thanks for the great memories and rest now and let your family carry your legacy onward.
