I knew Bill as a family friend in the 1960's and 70's. He spent many hours at my family home on 80th Street. I got to be a good friend of Bill's, but lost touch many years ago. I am so sorry to hear of his passing. I would love to catch up with the family. My prayers are with you and your family.

I was very sorry to learn of Bill's recent passing. I had the joy and privilege of; being a classmate with him at UWM, working with him in the AMC/JEEP days, and enjoying Summer fun in Eagle River. It was always great to see him and share a story and a good laugh. I wish my heart felt condolences to his family. Coyne Callaghan Jr. - Eau Claire, WI.

I am so sorry for this truly unexpected loss. Bill was a great guy and a great friend. It seems as if there are not many truly good men in the world anymore and we could ill afford to lose one of them in Bill. He will be missed by the many people who were lucky enough to know him.

Alison and family. I am so sorry for your loss.I got the call this morning, and was shocked. While working at American Suzuki, I was pleased when Bill joined our merry group of AMC alumni at Suzuki. I remember when you were married and was so pleased for you both. Bill was a good friend, a great guy, and everyone whose life he touched will miss him. His memory lives on. May God bless him.
