  1. I was so sad to read about Bill’s passing. We lost touch with him when Maxine and Eveline died, and I so regret not keeping in touch. Bill was such a joy to know, and he and Maxine’s friendship with my mother was so special. Please know his kindness and personality had such a wonderful impact on me when I was young. He will always be remembered as one of the kindest, sweetest and funniest people I ever met.

    Sincerely,
    Eveline’s daughter,

  4. Having known Bill at NCDC and talked with him many times after his retirement, his optimism and good humor stands out in my mind. He was a ‘fun’ guy even though he and his wife had a boatload of health problems. I am very glad to have known him

  5. I’m so sorry I’m unable to attend my Uncle Bill’s funeral. He was a wonderful man and meant so much to me in my life. I’m grateful that I visited him recently with my mother and sister and had a wonderful family reunion not knowing it would be our last. Uncle Bill was a great guy. He was loving, kind, funny, intelligent, curious, interested in your opinions and loved a lively political discussion. He will be sorely missed as the patriarch of our family. I love you Uncle Bill. See you in heaven.
