I am sorry to learn of Bill passing away.
I met Bill through a photographer, Peter Gowland in 1986 and had been friends since.
I photographed a lot of his teenage girls, Sara Hofer, Cherry Hooton and a few others.
He loved Indian cuisine and he knew every good restaurant in LA. I was amazed when he took me to a century old restaurant.
He left behind a great legacy, Meg, a young girl, he raised after her mom passed away. Meg is one his models.
He was very caring, emotion and lonely.

Meg, please accept my most sincere condolences on this loss. We both will miss him.

Bill made such a difference in so many young girls lives over the 65+ years he was in business. He really was an amazing soul that gave so many young girls the chance to grow up and learn about being a lady.

Words are inadequate to express my appreciation for Bill's impact on my life. I was very blessed to cross paths with him and to have him as mentor. I don't know what I would have done without him.

Our condolences to Bill's family as we Celebrate his 94 years of life.. He will be truly missed, but we will always remember how his life impacted our lives over the years. I remember Bill when I was just around 7 years old in Pasadena, and when I answered the door he would always play the guessing game, and pick what hand the quarter was in, and he would always let me win. I remember the nights we would always have popcorn, which was his favorite treat. Afterwards he would usually play the harmonica for our family and friends. My sister Priscilla Cory was one of his models, and I remember seeing her on two of the Rose Parade floats that Bill represented. It was so exciting for the whole family. My father Troy Cory is an entertainer, and I remember over the years Bill would always bring his models with him and they would be featured in pictures and video shows. Over the years we would celebrate Bill's Birthday Parties at our home in Pasadena and everybody had a great time, and it usually ended with Bill playing his harmonica.

Thank you Bill for all of the great memories.
