Bill was a Boston Coffee & Bagel Shop acquaintance. He could be found having coffee and conversation with his buddies. He always had a sweet smile for others who regularly enjoyed coffee too. He'll be missed by us all.

I met Bill back in 1966 we became fast friends he was my Elmer into Ham
Radio. I recall his wife Wanda and his children when we visited him on
Mott street off Brock Ave. I had moved out to Phila. and many years
past, we kept intouch via Radio and Internet. I also Made many trips up
to New Bedford to visit Bill and my Family and friends. Bill will
dearly be missed by me!! I was looking forward to seeing him in April
when I decided to move back to the area Bill is gone but he will not be
forgotten by all his friends. Rest In Peace Bill MIller...
