There is not enough space on this page to tell about Bill, he was a nice guy over the years. I knew him since 1970, I cannot help but smile at some of the crazy stories that I would tell. He was the first NP Railroad guy I met. He welcomed me into the TISB office. All 12 were NP people and I was the only GN person in that department. It was like going into confederate territory but Bill's welcoming and happy smile put me at ease.
Looking back I will miss knowing him, it was fun working with him, I will be forever enriched to have known him and to have called him my friend-thank you for all the fond memories; God Bless You, Rest in Peace.

Bill's Family:

I remember talking to Bill about diversions of cars on the NP and early days of the BN. He always answered my questions thoroughly and gave me many insights into the diversion process.
