Ruth, I am sorry to hear of Bill's passing. I am sorry that I did not hear in time to attend the funeral. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

Forgot to add one other thing: I either had forgotten or did not know that Bill's middle name was Garfield, which is my younger brother's name. I've known nobody else with that unique moniker!

Bill was one of the most generous people I have ever met. I remember with great fondness going to his mammoth July 4th barbeques; playing in his legendary poker games afterwards; puttering around Lake Washington with him pulling up cutthroat trout; or tramping up rivers with him and Walt Tabor not catching a damn thing. Today's service was beautiful, Ruth. You and Lori and Lisa and Heather did a wonderful job on the video montage, and I was genuinely moved during the playing of Taps and the presentation of the American flag. What a terrific tribute to a terrific guy. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of the ceremony and for being a guest in your home all those years ago. I will treasure the memories always.

RIP Coach! When it comes to coaching soccer Bill Muller was a trend setter. He would try anything to get an advantage. He helped to form the basis for where soccer is today.
He also made soccer an extension of his family and everyone who came through his program instantly became part of the family. He will be greatly missed but never forgotten.
Thanks for the memories.
