Bill and I became good friends during our senior year in high school. We spent many hours playing music (The Souls of Creation) and hanging out together. He was a talented drummer! We reconnected years later when he moved back into the family home. Peace, brother!

Bill was a close high school friend of my brother, Russ, and was a huge support to my brother and family during Russ’ early cancer fight. Bill was a “fixture” at our home and I treasure the memories. My heart goes out to his loved ones.

Bill lived down the street from me on Valley Road. As buddies, we spent many great days and nights practicing and playing music with a rock band in high school. His energy and wit kept things lively. He will live on in my memory. Godspeed Willie Mark.
