It is May, and I am shocked to read of Bill's death! We were fellow classmates in law school. We were not close, but he actually housed and fed me when we were both in England in the summer of 1976. He was working there and I was just backpacking around Europe. I was at that point in time just a mere acquaintance of his and he actually invited me to stay with him and his first wife. He even insisted on my going out with his wife and him to dinner on their 1st Anniversary so I would not be alone. What a guy; who else would be so kind! I will never forget that terrific kindness he showed me. I am sorry we did not remain in touch. My belated condolences to all his family. What a great guy!

To Bill's Family,

I am deeply saddened to just learn of Bill's death. Although we came from very different backgrounds, we had a very fine, close and humor-filled friendship. I so respected Bill's intellect, wit and willingness to argue about anything with anyone, including especially me. We were college roommates for 2 years at UW-Madison, and together marched in protest rallies, drank beer, and cooked each other inedible dinners. We reconnected by email a couple years ago, and had hoped to meet to see the Badger play football in Camp Randall. I am so saddened by your loss and send my belated best wishes.

I was so sad and shocked when a customer from Steven's Point told me about Bill last week. I was a friend from the 1980's and remember fun times at the Monte Carlo and hanging out in Uptown. Sometimes I would run into Bill in the skyways of Mpls and I loved to catch up on his life. I remember him telling me when he met Nancy and how excited he was. We lost touch over the past years but I can imagine what a great husband and father he was. He was one of the kindest people I have ever met and his sweet personality made a big impression on me.

Surprised by the announcement- Knew Bill well through early grade school and into high school- our paths crossed often during those years- Trick or treating-overnight stays-cub scouts etc- I saw him once during the last ten years- and like his father he rarely forgot a face and his friends. We wish the family joy in his life well celebrated and fond memories into the next many years- our condolences.
