It was truly a pleasure knowing Bill. Every time he walked into Nordstrom he brought a smile to everyone's face. We always enjoyed his great sense of humor and his wonderful stories. Dee you are in our thoughts and prayers.

Dee, I will light a candle tomorrow in church in remembrance.
My husband Tom passed on Jan. 27th 2007. He worked with Bill. Both loved their work with the Anchorage Police Dept. and oh what a life they had. God Bless....Mary Jane Ricketts

Never was I so shocked and saddened when I opened up the newspaper on Wednesday to read that Bill had passed away.
I was privileged to meet and work with Bill when I worked as an attorney in the Anchorage DA's office in the 1980's. We developed a friendship that lasted forever. I was one of the lucky ones that got to go out to lunch with him once or twice a year. It should have been more often, but we both were busy people. As I have worked downtown since the 1970's, I was lucky to have numerous encounters with Bill on the streets of downtown Anchorage, especially in the last years when he was literally stationed downtown. One of our encounters was recorded by the Channel 2 News, when he asking how I was doing after my husband has passed away not long before. And he ended the conversation with: "We should do lunch!" And we did have lunch. He was always in a good mood, always had a joke, always was supportive of me and my endeavors, and was always a good listener. His untimely death is so unfair on so many levels. He loved his wife, Dee, so much and was so looking forward to retirement. He had so many plans to enjoy his retirement years and now he had his wife to enjoy those years with him. I am so glad that he had these last few years together with Dee. He proudly showed me her photo and seemed so happy to be married and settled down.
Bill, so many people will miss you and your good humor, your honesty and integrity. You were the epitome of the "neighborhood cop" that everyone knew downtown. We felt safe with you around. My only comfort is knowing you are in a better place now. But we all will miss you so much. Rest in peace and keep watching over us. Lisa
