My condolences to Bill's family. During his Willow Run career he was instrumental in making possible my first career opportunities with GM. I will remember him always.
Bill was such a kind & wonderful friend to my family over the years. Our children played together when they were young. Bill even gave our daughter Kristine the nickname "the bean" which has stuck with her. We will miss him dearly. Our thoughts and prayers are with my best friend Margaret and her son Paul.

To Paul and family,
We are sad to learn of Bill's passing.
I grew up with Bill and we enlisted in the Air Force at the same time along with Sam Nicolaou. Being the first time away from home, the 3 of us stayed very close to each other and that friendship continued thru the years. ]
Bill assisted Judi and I when we moved back to Ann Arbor in 1992, and also helped with the sale of our home 3 yrs. later.
I have wonderful memories of Bill and his kindness to all who knew him.
Our prayers and thoughts are with you during this sad time. The wonderful memories will live on.
Gretchen and I send our regards to the Hallas family. Bill and I grew up together and went to the same schools during our growing up years. We both attended EMU for one semester before he, Skip Reichenberger and myself joined the Air Force together. He and I stayed in touch over the phone a little after we both lost a son and could console each other somewhat. He was one heck of guy!!!!
Our condolences to the Hallas family. Bill and my dad grew up together and Bill sold my husband and I our home which we still live in. I think of Bill often when the clock he gave us chimes on the hour. It was such a lovely thoughtful housewarming gift just like Bill always was.
