Bill with Charlie, Frank and Walter

My name is Chad Stein. I am the Grandson of Walter Halpern who is a resident where Bill lived in Fremont, California.

I met Bill and his wife Clare in the middle of 2012 when my Grandpa moved in. Bill and Clare appeared to be the "mayors" of the senior citizen community as it seemed that they knew everyone. In the dining room, they'd make their daily rounds to say "hello" to everyone and have conversations. With that being said, they quickly introduced...

At the carlton with the exotic birds.


I was very upset when I learned that Bill had passed away. He was a lovely man and, it was a pleasure to have known him. I always enjoyed seeing the two of you together, and the conversations we would have. I will truly miss seeing him at the Carlton. Please accept my heartfelt sympathy, and my condolences to all your children and grandchildren.


Please accept our condolences on the passing of your father. You and your family are in our thoughts and prayers during this time of mourning and remembrance.
