    It was always a pleasure to visit with Bill, have a beer (or two) and listen to his Brooklyn and Navy stories. He was a good guy who I will miss.

    Bill was the kind of man everyone wants as a friend. His was of cheerful countenance. His obvious love for family, friends, and life was contagious. I was fortunate to enjoy many noon hour bridge games with Bill. Bridge was not the only game he enjoyed. Along with other GE friends, I marveled at Bill’s repeatedly demonstrated ability to nurture an obviously dead poker hand into a winner. Bill shared many amusing stories at the card table. One related how he and his teenage buddies found their way into the “Garden” to watch their beloved Rangers only to realize too late that they had been cheering the visiting Blackhawks. Thank you, Bill, for your friendship.

    Your ever-present smile, the gleam in your eye, your hearty laugh..these were the best parts of you dear brother. You are a part of so many cherished memories for me and my family. Thank you for that. It's been a long stretch for you. I am glad you have found peace. May your family find their peace as well. Til we meet again..

    Uncle Bill I can’t tell you how much you’ll be missed. My trips to Florida remain some of my fondest memories and it makes me so sad to know the next visit you won’t be there. Your last few years have been rough, but all the ones before that were well lived and well loved. Rest easy, we love you. Aunt Mary Lee you are one of the strongest people I know. I know it is very painful right now but I hope over the coming weeks and months you will find some peace. Love you so much!!

    I always loved going to to Florida as a kid-you made it feel like a second home. Some of my favorite childhood memories happened with you...crushing the cans out by the pool, finding new hats on your wall, finding you in the garage and watching you complete your newest project, going to the Bowery, and of course, going to the Cubs games. I know we all miss you very much, but we can be comforted by the fact that you are up there enjoying endless hot dogs and beer. I love you, Uncle Bill, save some hot dogs for us!
