I will miss Bill coming into the store (Nordstrom) and making us laugh with one of his jokes. Some were ones I could take home and tell to my kids. Dee, he adored you! I am so sorry for your loss.

Rest in peace my dear friend. The last time I saw you downtown you spoke lovingly of your wonderful wife and how happy you were - Dee I am so glad the two of you found each other. Bill was a true supporter and friend, we enjoyed many many good times. He touched so many lives and was truly one of the kindest men I have ever known.

We were shocked at the news of Bill's passing. Bill was a truly good man, one of a kind. He was an outstanding police officer. When all hell was breaking loose (example: Palace Hotel brawls), Bill would walk in the door and you knew things would start to get under control. He knew all the patron's names and, due to his previous professional and compassionate contact with them, they would comply with his orders. Not out of fear, but out of the same sense of respect that he consistently showed each of them. Our prayers are going up for Bill's family. Well done, Brother. You will be missed.

Bill, you were a man of honor and kindness...a true gem of mankind. I am honored to have had the opportunity to know you, work alongside you, and laugh with you. I will always fondly remember you for your infectious laugh when you told a joke...which often tickled me more than the punch line. Thank you for teaching us what compassion and humanity is all about. Your legacy humbles me. Rest in peace my friend and keep the other angels smiling.

Bill, you were a man of honor and kindness, a true gem of mankind. I am honored to have had the opportunity to know you, work alongside you and laugh with you. I will never forget your infectious laughter at your own jokes...it tickled me more than the punch lines. Thank you for teaching us what compassion really is and for never losing your humanity. Rest peacefully and keep the other angels smiling.

Bill was a customer at Z-CoiL for years and when you saw him coming it just made your day. He will be missed by all.

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

Bill was one of a kind. Always smiling and cheerful. My thoughts and prayers are with his family. He will be missed by all.
