July 25, 1944 ~ May 1, 2009
Greece: Friday, May 1, 2009, at age 64, Bill stepped onto his soapbox in the sky after succumbing to cancer. A retired city school teacher and adjunct MCC professor, he will be remembered for his idealism, his passion, and razor sharp wit which were often applied to the politics of the day. Always the life of the party, he was a natural comic who endeared himself to everyone he met. A sports car enthusiast, he enjoyed rides with his grandchildren, Ethan and Spencer in his Honda S2000. And a more loyal fan of the New York Giants there never was. He is survived by children Jennifer, Sarah and Steven; brother James; nephew John, as well as lifelong friends in the Starbird family. Friends may call Wednesday 4-7 PM at the Vay-Schleich & Meeson Funeral Home, 1075 Long Pond Road. Interment, private. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation (www.multiplemyeloma.org).
