Hi Marlene, my apologies for the late message. I only heard about Bill's passing just yesterday after having dinner with fellow State Farmers who had told me.

I had the pleasure and honor of working for Bill from 1986-1989 at the old State Farm Claims, Almaden Office. In my 33 years with the company and out of all the supervisors I've had, Bill had the most impact on career. Bill was extremely intelligent and very well spoken. He was an excellent Superintendent, but most of all, he was an exceptional mentor. Asides from Bill's intelligence and deep knowledge of insurance case law, he was very friendly and engaging and knew how to get the best efforts out of those he supervised.

I am very saddened to hear of Bill's passing, but I take comfort in knowing that he is in a better place.

Marlene,I am sorry to just find out about Bill's passing. We shared a lot of good time at Santa Clara and I will always have fond memories of our friendship during a time when we we were all trying to discover who we are and where we are supposed to go. Our prayers are with you and I know he is in a good place of peace, comfort and perpetual light. Bruce Bottini

Marlene,
I'm so sorry to hear the news about Bill. Bill was an awesome man, and his energy and kindness were always a great inspiration to me whenever I got the chance to swim with him. In fact, probably the main reason I would go to Campbell pool on the days when Santa Clara pool was closed was to have a chance to see Bill and catch up with him. I'll still do that, but now it will be an opportunity to think about him and remember him. I know this is a very tough time, and my condolences and best wishes go to you and your family.
With warmest regards,
Ira

Marlene,
Ever since I ran into you at Santa Clara, I have been upset about the news regarding Bill. To learn that he passed away was extremely sorrowful. I figured something was up since I haven't seen you there in a while. What a wonderful man. Glad I had a chance to interact with him. Please take good care of yourself.
