On behalf of the United States Submarine Veterans (USSVI), we offer our sincere condolences to Lou Ann, Michael, Thomas, John, Mary, Peter, Daniel, Patricia, Elizabeth, Joanna, and Rebecca and all of Bill's family and friends as you grieve his passing. May God whisper peace into your hearts and comfort and heal them. We are grateful for Bill's service to our country during WWII in the U.S. Submarine Service on the USS Paddle SS-263. To our “Brother of the Dolphin” … "Sailor, rest your oar. We have the watch. May you rest in peace and may God bless your loved ones who remain. Thank you for your service to our country." -- Rev.
