Bill was a good soul. The campus radio station at SCSU actually had a tee shirt with a drawing of him when he was an undergraduate. Prof. Jerry Dunklee

Sincerest condolences to Bill's family. Cliff was a really great guy, outgoing, down to earth, one of the most sociable guys in our HS class, went camping and to jamborees in our Scout troop. Lost track after HS during the pre internet pre social media years. Regret not having been aware there was the chance to reconnect while you were still on earth, good buddy. \m/ Rest In Power \m/

I am so very sorry for the loss of Bill. I haven't seen him since high school, but he is one of the few that I remember to be a truly sweet, genuine guy and so easy to talk and laugh with. This is so tragic and a terrible loss. My condolences to your family.

Dearest Nancy, Beth and Peter, and family,

We are deeply saddened and our hearts ache. The world is a little less soulful without Cliffy. He was a star in so many ways with uncommon kindness and an open heart of friendship. He will be deeply, deeply missed.

Our love,
John and Dianne Sullivan
