I hadn't seen Bill for years and then ran into him a couple of years ago. It was like old times immediately. We met again a few times and talked about the old times and how things were with our lives. Ann Marie I'm so sorry for your loss. Please know that you and your children are in Sheila's and my prayers. Rest in peace old friend!

I knew Bill from Raytheon in Andover. I was the only female at an otherwise all male group of workers that shared a table in the cafeteria on our 2nd shift 'lunch' break. Sometimes the guys would get a little rowdy with their language, but Billy would always reign them in out of respect for me. He was soft spoken and always a gentleman. A really great guy. I also knew his brother Terry from working in the Lowell plant. I'm so sorry for your loss Terry, and the rest of the family. Peace be with you all. ❤

I have not seen Bill since high school! We grew up in the upper highlands, a great place for children to grow up! Everyone knew each other and looked out for each other! I feel so bad! He leaves a beautiful family, who will continue to carry on his legacy! May his sweet soul rest in heavenly peace and comfort! He will always be remembered fondly by all of his classmates

Unfortunately, I had not seen Billy for many years, but I remember him and Ann Marie very clearly from - it must be the seventies. Very nice people, and Billy Guthrie was truly a good kid - a lot of fun to be with. Smart, great talker, with an excellent sense of humor. Sorry I lost touch with him. All of the people who knew Billy were sad to hear this news.
