I am extremely numb and bummed to hear about Bill. I had talked with him a couple of weeks before the re-union and was hoping to connect with him. Called his number the morning he passed....no response yet...but I wouldn't mind getting that return call.

So sad to learn of Bill's death. Based on what I was able to see on Bill's Facebook page, it sounds like his "pinstriping" talents were legendary. Another sad loss for the class of '66.
I remember Bill, but f didn't know "Wild Bill" that well in high school. Sounds like he'll be pinstriping the "Pearly Gates" upstairs. Rest easy Bill.
Sorry to hear about your passing. You were a true friend and I could always count on you to offer advice when I was ready to explode. I was never able to thank you for keeping me sane in shop class. Your kind words and keen observations about my attempts at making a dust pan kept me from throwing my project through the window on several occassions. Your suggestion about me taking an abstract art class was helpful. You were also "Johnny on the Spot" during track practice when you pointed out that a 215 lb linebacker attempting to run the 70 yd. high hurdles was aerodynamically impossible. I will miss you brother, but I know we will meet again. Rest in Peace.

Rest in peace Bill. I hope you got to here the New Stones album ( Blue And Lonesome) before your passing. Back then everyone else was into the Beatles and Beach Boys while we were rocking to the Rolling Stones. I know I realy liked the exchanging of albums. I also wish I was as good a Artist as you were. I'm grateful to have been in a small part of your life. Thanks

So sorry to hear yet another one of our classmates passing. I never knew you personally Bill but I feel as though I did being we are SA Valley classmates! Please continuing your pinstriping in Heaven!
