Not sure what to say?

I am glad I had the chance to meet Bill and talk with him! He will be missed by so many !

Bill was engaged in life, fully and passionately. I miss him dearly. Even after his series of health issues where he was left nearly without speech and nearly immobile, he maintained his engagement with the world, and looked forward to every tomorrow. I admired him deeply, and loved his company. He could talk about any subject, and with aplomb and humor: athletics, nature, travel, finances, progressive politics, books, history, culture, and the future. Bill, if you are reading this...

We were so lucky to have Bill in our lives. The city and the streets of Bangor will miss having his energetic, delightful spirit. He always had a hearty hello to give. His advocacy and support of equal rights for all made the world a better place. He has left his mark, and it is generosity and goodness.

I've been so blessed to know you and work with you at UUSB. So grateful I saw you in October when I visited from my new home in Florida. You will live on in your family and friends. Love,
Carolyn Kinnard Ziffer

He was a true institution of downtown Bangor and the duplicate bridge groups to which he walked regularly!

We will miss Bill so very much. He was a true friend, a man of great integrity, keen insight and unfailing good humor. Please accept our heartfelt condolences.

I feel honored to have known Bill. I played bridge with Bill, he really loved the game and he was a sweet, sweet man.

May he rest in peace.

Dad was reading something to Emily and me.

I remember the laughs we had during our last visit in November.
