I first met William at the Nashville Predators games & he was always the nicest guy. I would often run into him at some events the team had be it at the Bridgestone or maybe some other place. I just heard of his passing last night. My thoughts & prayers go out to his family. Bill will be missed.

My condolences to Bill's family for your loss. I last spoke to Bill in July 2012 at the Castner Knott reunion. I had looked forward to seeing him again at the Predators games this season. Bill will be greatly missed by his many CK co-workers and fellow Preds fans.

Sitting next to Bill for 7 seasons, I was able to know the man well, and I can honestly say that he was one of the kindest people I've ever known. You will be missed Bill.

Sincere condolences to your family. My wife, daughter, and I have sat next to Bill in the 303 Cell Block for the last several years. We will miss the kindness to those around him, his sprited taunts of the opposing teams, and the camaraderie we shared. A person like BIll cannot be replaced, and will not be forgotten. May God bless your family during this time of loss.

Bill was always so supportive of Chelsea's work in the theatre and was genuinely one of the nicest guys I have ever met. We didn't have enough opportunities to chat, but I enjoyed talking with Bill every time I did have the chance.
