Shelley and I are so glad we got to spend time with you (Peggy) and Bill at your wedding. We are both so sorry for your loss. I have some very fond memories of growing up with Bill right across the street on Bailey Ave. And I really looked forward to our yearly phone chats, where Bill would catch me up on the latest goings-on in Yalesville. He may have been blind, but he knew what was happening in town. I consider myself blessed to have known him.

Tom and I will miss you we love you and I will miss your jokes and smart remarks. I will always remember the family times we had and my 1 st Thanksgiving with this family and how you made me feel comfortable. Our talks while exercising while listening to tv. I would always be grateful for what you did for my family when my mom passed . You and aunt Barbara were there in minutes for us. I will always be grateful for your relationship with Tommy and my kids you were a good cousin and we will miss you very much. Thanks for all you taught me in locksmith. Love iren and Tom

To Bill's family I'm so sorry of his passing. We played together as children growing up on the same street. Believe it or not, hide and seek in the dark. Bill didn't win much at that game, but he always tried. Again, so sorry.

Bill, you are a treasured friend, and one who, by example, reaffirmed an invaluable life lesson: Accept, and most importantly embrace, your lot in life, no matter what that is. You never once complained about physical limitations. And that's because from your perspective, even without the benefit of eyesight, there were none. You successfully traversed life's challenges without any one becoming an obstacle or impediment to what you enjoyed doing most. And that was a lifelong career of locksmithing. You taught me the craft, and you were one of the most revered by colleagues all over Connecticut and New England. And lastly, there was no greater fan of law enforcement than you. So, I thank you Bill, for many years of distinguished friendship. More precisely: 35 down and Forever to go!
