I will never forget riding to the nearest swimming hole in his convertible Chevy or standing in the entrance of "Dad's & Lad's" Shoe store in the Muncie Mall just to watch all the girls walk by.
He and Tony were great friends back then, but time & life seems to draw away and good friendships fade away, but the persons and memories are not forgotten.
I was deeply sadden to hear of Bill's passing. I will always have fond memories of him (and Tony's little green Toyota hatchback) and those few summers of mischief.
My sincerest condolences,
