Not sure what to say?

Tolly -.what a tremendous loss for you, Jack, Dorsey and Billy's wife Louisa and daughter Victoria. His photo looks so much like he did in 1970 when he would go sailing with the Coast Guard on Sunday afternoon and I'd sit in his Mercedes studying Latin. I can see from the comments that he remained the delightful, kind, smart, gentle boy I knew in high school. A terrible shock. I know Billy loved being a Boatwright. My most sincere condolences to all of you. Billy, I miss you, R.I.P.

My condolences to the Boatwright family on their loss. I worked with Bill for years at Computervision. He was brilliant and had an incredible sense of humor. My prayers are with his family at this difficult time. ~ Joy Garon

Prayers sent. My deepest sympathy.

I just learned about Boats loss this morning from another ex colleague Bruce Ledbetter. We all used to work together at computer vision. It was my first job out of college when I worked with boats. Those years were lots of fun. My condolences to all of the family.


All my condolences, I will always remember Bill from the days at CV

I am so sad. I just googled Bill today...after how many decades? Tolly, Dorsey, Jack, my heart goes out to you. What a sweet man. What a loss. love, Dd from Essex

What a loss! I remember racing a Falcon in Stonington in the late 1960's. We didn't do well and blamed it on the boat. We let Bill and Jack race it during the week and they took in many firsts. So much for our excuse!
I loved his humor, smile and so much more. He will be greatly missed.
