I am so sorry to hear of Bill’s passing. Mr. White, my 5th grade teacher at Foothill Elementary, was not only an outstanding teacher, but also smart, charismatic, funny, and charming. He had a gift of connection. He inspired me to be great, academically, athletically and socially, at an age that probably mattered the most for me. I distinctly remember his voice, his love for US History, and his affectionate nickname for me...“Peaches.” He is one of two of my all time favorite teachers.
I stopped by to visit him a few times years ago on my bike, and once with my friend and classmate, Willy Fekeci. I remember his street name like I looked it up a minute ago. We had great conversations. I’m sorry that I didn’t do that more recently and more often.
Bless you and thank you, Bill White, for many indelible memories. You made a big difference in my life. Barbara and family, I am sorry for your loss.
