Remembering Bill at the Yacht Club, in school plays, right next door to Terry Raney, nickname "Peanut", in DeMolay, a class character, a notable target in gym dodgeball, driving in one of the first "foreign" cars in River, member of the stage crew, and one of Miss White's pets.  Sorry he will no longer be around.

Bill always had a smile on his face.  I remember all the fun we had in Neophytes and Thespians and the cast parties were the BEST.  He always made us laugh.  He made everyone's day a little brighter and better.  I recall  Bill being in a special presentation of Julius Caesar in English class along with Ted Cooper, Barb Baker,  and Erv Wentz.
