Bill’s children Mona and Bradley and his grandchildren John, Janine, and Tessa will carry on his legacy and lessons.

His family will remember his intelligence and wit as the winner of countless family debates and scrabble games.

A few additional words from his son Brad:
There were times I thought he was being,
Just a little bit hard on me.
But now I understand he was making me,
Become the ‘man’ he knew that I could be.
And everything he ever did,
He always did with love,
And I’m proud today to say I’m his ‘son’.
When someone says I hope I get to meet your dad,
I just smile and say “you just did.”
