Bill was a classmate and my closest friend in high school as well as a member of my wedding party (and I his). He had a zest for life and a competitive spirit as great as I have ever known. Bill is a great example of the title of the 1958 (our graduation year) number one song. That title was taken from the tombstone of the dad's author, which was inscribed with the words, “to know him is to love him.” I certainly did, as well as many others. I shall miss him terribly.
