Emil Pinta alerted me to the opportunity to share about Bill. I had the privilege of first knowing Bill as a medical student at OSU when I was the psychiatry resident on the Upham Hall third floor service....and then again years later (1991-2004)in my role as Medical Director for the Ohio Department of Mental Health (ODMH). Bill was then an ODMH psychiatrist also teaching MCO students at the State Hospital in Toledo. When I visited Toledo I usually tried to meet with Bill and seek his input and advise and observed his care, his interaction with patients and staff and his teaching. Bill, despite some limitations because of MS (e.g., in a wheel chair), was a wonderful doctor, teacher and person and quite simply an inspiration to me and many as indicated in the testimonials in this guest book.

Bill and I were residents together in psychiatry at OSU. All the wonderful characteristics people have written about Bill were there when he was training to become a psychiatrist. I recall that Bill was always the first to step forward and fill in on the call schedule if someone was ill.
He will be missed not only by Peggy and his family, but by everyone involved in community mental health.

Dear Lenz Family, I was reading The Ohio State Alumni Magazine for Nov-Dec 13 and was saddened to learn of Bill's death. I searched for and found the obituary on line. I worked with Bill during the 65-66 academic year and remember him as intensely dedicated his pre-med program. Somehow I knew that he had completed his MD but had, unfortunately, lost track of him after that time. I was pleased to learn of his life and medical career but saddened to learn that he had MS. I remember fondly his concern for 'his boys' (that is, the students on the floor where he was a counselor)and can easily see how that concern would have expanded to the patients he served. Although belated, may I offer my sincere sympathies.

Peggy, You are a trooper! My memories of you and Bill in Philadelphia are vivid: the Thanksgiving dinner with rice and mashed potatoes, the helpful advice with our first baby, the laughs we shared on "nights out", my visit to you in Toledo, and phone calls through the years.
Jesus, your brother, is praying deep inside you. May you feel the healing power of His love.
Love always, Martha Gunter

Dear Peggy: My message is on its way and I am only sorry that I could not be there to add to the Hoyt family support during the funeral and reception. I know you will continue to be strong and will find continuing support from you boys and the rest of the relatives far away. With love and thoughts of what you are now coping with with this great loss. Love Joanne
