Grew up with Billy in the east end of Newport News. Pledged for the SPD fraternity when I was in the ninth grade. Billy really took care of me when I was pledging. Never forget Billy''s 1957 Ford station wagon. He and I and Johnny Schweida drank many beers together in that car. Oh the good times! Love you brother! May you Rest In Peace.

I knew Bill in school and was in his graduation class. He was a stand up all around good guy. May he now rest in peace free of pain and be with his love ones waiting for him already up there watching and the ones left behind on earth dry their tears of sadness for Bill suffers no more.

Philip and I are very sorry for you loss. The few times I met Bill and from the stories Carol tells, I know he was a special guy.

I am so very sorry to learn of Bill's passing. I worked at the DCMA office in Richmond in contracting and Bill was the quality assurance representative at many of the contractors I handled in the Hampton area. We spent a lot of time together visiting plant facilities. Bill was always fun to be with and he readily shared his abundant knowledge. We shared lots of laughter and good times!! I'm so sorry you've lost both your mother and father. May God bring you comfort and peace through this difficult time.
