Dear Alice,
I'm so sorry to hear of Bill's passing. He was a very friendly man who always made everyone smile. His sense of humor was unique. I knew Bill from St. Thomas' Bingo where he really brightened the atmosphere. Bill was a good man and will be missed. My prayers are with you and your family.

Bill, you made every day a special day for me... You will be missed.. Joe

Bill was one of the first S67 mechanics I met after arriving at PNSY on the USS Shangri-La. He was working with Bert Dunbar in a TTY room. I was a Navy ET and I looked up Bill to get some advice on a technical problem I had on the Shang. He made me feel welcome and helped me out. All through the years we worked together he always made me feel welcome. Fine man,good friend.

Our sincere condolences on Bill's passing. A lot of memories and a lot fun working with Bill for thirty years. Great dedicated worker and a great friend. Loved the guy.

We are so sorry to hear of the passing of your amazing father. His laughter and smile filled whatever room he was in. The love that he shared with your Mom was a beautiful example of true love. He will be missed, but his gift of love and laughter shines on in you.

I was so sorry to hear of Bill’‘s passing. I’ve worked with him for several years at the voting polls and also attended many Sons of Italy functions he was at. He will be greatly missed!
