My dad was the most intelligent and empathetic person I've ever known. He knew how to deal with everybody, always adapting his message to what they needed to hear. It was not always an easy message - often, it was hard. But it was always kind.

Bill was a friend and mentor! I will miss his presence and friendship! I met him through lacrosse as a coach. My son Nick competed with his teams and my son Brandon played for his teams. Both respect him for his commitment to and passion for Texas lacrosse! He gave so much and impacted so many! One of my favorite life lessons that Bill taught his players was, “act like you have been there before” when they scored a goal and celebrated! I had the opportunity to coach against Bill, with Bill, and as THSLL Commissioner to present the DII State Championship Trophy to Bill! All special experiences! Meeting at Denny’s with Bill was always special for me! He gave much, influenced so many, and will truly be missed! May God Bless!

I met Bill in 1964 at a Sigma Alpha Epsilon "Parent Weekend". Everyone called him "Tex" for obvious reasons. Kiddingly, he would tell people that he was from Louisiana, but he didn't want them calling him "Louise". (Bill had a humorous personality, and would always find fun in word play.) This trait has been carried over by all four of his children.

Married 55 years, he turned this Up State New York girl into a true Texan.

Bill loved Dallas, his friends and family to a fault. He never gave up on any of us. He loved us all unconditionally. We have told our own children that parenting does not come with a manual. We at times faltered, but did the best we could. Bill was always there when we fell, and encouraged us to move on and be the best we could be.

So many memories in 55 plus years, and his presence will always leave a void in our hearts. Bill would want us to celebrate his life and not grieve for him. So to you, my sweet, dear, wonderful husband - Bottoms Up!

Will love you forever and always, Connie

Bill was a mentor and coach to our five sons, John, Stephen, Michael, Billy, and Jimmy, always guiding them to pursue “excellence.” Someone once said that “ life is a marathon, not a sprint. “ When I visited him near the end to offer encouragement, he said he would never give up. He taught our sons many things, but never giving up was the greatest lesson.

Bill was a good friend and a wonderful mentor to our son, Michael. We have such great memories of the many years of traveling across the country to the OM competitions. The team & parents became a family! My late husband & I are also proud parents of an Eagle Scout (troop 575) because of Bill’s persistence. He said, “they should get it done before the fumes take hold. the perfumes & the gas fumes”. Michael & his best bud, Gray Garmon became Eagle Scouts in the spring of their senior year. Bill will be greatly missed, but never forgotten.
