Bill was one of my best long-time friends at the Y. He and I loved the sauna and spent many hours over the years talking business, music, politics, and life in general. I called him "Mr. Bill". As others have said, he was a true gentleman. I will sorely miss him.

Nice picture of Bill that captured his frankness, wit, humor, kindness. I always felt I knew what was on Bill's mind. One of a kind.
You are missed.

"Billie B" as he was affectionately called by his Karaoke family was a one in a million gentlemen..I know I personally looked forward to his singing, harmonica accompaniment, and his signature high kick jig. I wull miss him and his " Hey baby doll, where's my hug?" Prayers for strength and healing to you all.
