Dear Evelyn and family
I am sorry to hear of the passing of my life long friend. We grew up one block apart shared many memories playing hockey , baseball (coached by his father)and football at P.C.V.S. Bill was a gentleman in sports and didn't let his size interfere with fair play. His parents were my second parents, I had breakfast every saturday morning at there house being the bread boy!
He was a great teamate and competed with compassion and desire. My sincere condolences to you all. Gordon
