I am really going to miss Bill.  He was a great friend for many years starting in high school. We attended the reunions together. He was very friendly, had a great sense of humor and always showed respect for everyone. He gave all of us soo much ( : < )

So sorry to hear the news regarding bill.  We both lived on Crestwood Road in Parkwood and road the bus for many years together.  He always had a big smile and a witty thing or two to say.  If I wasn't on the bus he always made sure to say hi to my mom if she was out front...

Bill was a good friend at Walter Johnson and we had a lot of great fun times together during those years. He had a great sense of humor.  He was a very good man, and he will be missed.

Our last conversation was after another WJ friend had passed. We both agreed that our classmate's death would "hurt" for a while.This kind, smart, and funny man's passing will also hurt for a while......
