Not sure what to say?

Hopefully it is not too late to say how much I care. Will was a neat guy with many talents. It is really tough when a classmate dies. He was blessed with many great school friends.

My condolences to Will's family. All the years I knew him, Will was remarkable.

So sorry to hear of Bill's passing. As fellow young materials engineers at Caltrans, we shared a lot professionally, and enjoyed many good times together. Softball teams, camping trips, bicycling, parties and even a partnership (along with Roland)in rehabing an old Victorian commercial building in downtown Sacramento. Thanks, Bill, for the many good memories you helped create. RIP.

I am very sad that Bill passed away. He was my hero during our senior year at BHS. He, his parents and friends made me love the US all my life.After Super Bowl 1996 I visited his Dad in Omaha and had Bill on the phone the last time. I remember each word we said. Dear Bill may you find your peace in God.

To know Will was to love him, or at least like him a lot. When he first showed signs of Alzheimer's Disease over a dozen years ago Elaine and I visited Will in California. His neighbors sure loved him. They were determined to watch over him and support him so that he could stay in his home as long as possible. It was touching.

Bill gave us his talents and his friendship. He was a friend from grade school through high school, so it is impossible to forget such special memories.

I think what I will remember most about Willie is his beaming, genuine smile and settling quietness whenever I saw him in high school, any fun get-togethers, and school functions. Of course, cheering for him on the field (and his great football playing along with our other great football players) was a real highlight. I'm so sad to hear he's not still here with us, but I know he's now smiling in heaven, & I'm praying for & sending God's love and peace to comfort all his family &...

And then there were three.
Perry Wickstom and I met Willie in grade school. As time went along, Tim Newens and Dwayne Jelinek joined us in a group we called the Fearless Five (kids do stupid stuff like that). Dwayne and Willie are no longer with us, but we celebrate both of them with our great memories.
Mine: baseball and football, especially football. As the quarterback at BHS I spent 4 years with both of my hands firmly jammed under his backside. Rex Johnson, our coach, said our...

I remember you well. Very friendly, insightful. Just an outstanding guy.
