Here are some special memories shared by family and friends.
Sorry to hear of Bills passing, from the first time we met I always enjoyed his sharing and life's values. He will be missed and remembered always. Always would kid about not being a fan of the Daily News
I remember meeting Bill at Kelly and Tony's wedding. He was a very vivacious individual. I enjoyed meeting him and spending dinner with him that first evening, and then sharing the special event. I'm sad to have only been graced by his company on the one occasion.
Bill may have been a little guy but he squeezed a lot of love, guts and family in there. Once you were in you were in that is that. Loved to break chops on any topic. A real hero to me just when one was needed. Please watch over me so that I can be half the man you were.
I met Bill in the program. He was a mans, mans, rock solid in his program . Bills heart was huge , he helped me in many ways. Talking to Bill, before and after meetings was a joy. Bill I will miss you so much. Bill , save me a set. I love you. Dave. P
