In the 90's, Bill was a great neighbor and friend. To celebrate the first Earth Day in Montara, we cut down a tree in Bill's front yard. It fell onto the street and took out Bill's cable tv line. Bill was always suggesting that he borrow a Sheedy crane and remove a tree in my back yard. We trimmed it with a saw instead and took out part of his fence and Kathy's roses. She was not amused. However, she was greatly amused when we lost control of a gas powered fence post hole digger in Bill's front yard. It kept swirling around, stuck in the hole/clay, and we had to tackle it with a blanket to kill the motor. When Bill turned 40, he started surfing Montara Beach. When Devil's slide went out in '95, Bill rode his bike over Montara mountain into Pacifica to drive to work. RIP, your "beaver brother" Ray.
