Bill was a fun-loving, good friend and neighbor to our parents back in the 80´s and 90´s. After our Dad had a stroke, Bill made sure to continue to stop by for a regular visit or BBQ in our carport like before (see picture). He was so kind to suggest that I contact his sister Janice and her husband Steve when I did a solo visit to England in 1993. I did, and they put me up for several nights and made it the absolute best part of the trip. On behalf of myself, my sister and brother, we send our condolences to the entire family. Bill was a really good guy.
