    He may be gone but he will live forever in your hearts and thoughts. Our deepest sympathy for the loss of your husband, father, and grandfather. We will remember his sense of humor and willingness to give of himself be it babysitting for his grandchildren or delivering Meals on Wheels. Rest In Peace.

    Uncle Bill was a good man and a great uncle. Played golf, went to beach and had many Friendly’s sundays on his nickle growing up. He also put up with me and Billy with all our young boy issues (trouble). Will miss him.
