Not sure what to say?

Bill was a great sportsman, worked out hard and caught many fish with his friends, He was very proud of his family. he will be missed but not forgotten. I know the fish trembled when he looked into the waters.

great sense of humor, always smiling. But, he lost that smile once. I being a HANDBALL PLAYER, told Bill, that I would rather have lost a game of HANDBALL, than ever have played a game of racquetball. He almost punched me out, but that great smile and laughter came back.

Dear Sondra and Melissa

I worked with Bill for many years first met him about 22 years ago when I worked for the City of Pinole and continued to work with him on many projects in my current job at Dublin/San Ramon Scvs. Attended A's games with him on many occasions and the only foul ball i ever caught at a major league game resulted from tickets that Bill gave me. We laughed about that every time we met after that. I will miss his personality, great guy, one of a kind as I am sure...

Super guy! Fishing, hiking, RB, flying and much more in Canada, Alaska and Mexico. Great times! I'll miss him.

Bill was a friend borne from many intense hours on the court. His always present humor and smile were gateways to his special character. I remember how excited and proud he was when Melissa received the scholarship for softball. A great guy, a great friend.

I have known Bill for many years from the Walnut Creek Racquetball Club. He was there every night of the week playing and talking to every one with that big smile like in this picture.
Just a great Guy that you don't come across that often. I am sorry for your loss.

Dear Sondra and Melissa, I knew Bill through many years and hundreds of games of racquetball at the Walnut Creek Club and Big C. There is an old saying that sports do not build character, they reveal it. While the rest of us revealed our flaws, Bill seemed to be the best at taking both winning and losing in stride and keeping a sense of humor. It's a lesson I appreciate even more now, thanks Bill.

It is so sad to hear of Bill's passing. Bill always had a smile on his face and something good to say. He was a good friend to all of us. Bill was the most physically fit in our group of RB players. I had always thought that he would be the last of our group that would be physically able to continue playing RB. Now Bill is playing in a better place. We miss you.

Melissa...my condolences.
