I just wanted to send my sympathy to you on Bill's passing. He was my neighbor in Hacks Point. He did have an interesting sense of humor and made me laugh many times. His favorite stunt was pulling into his driveway when I was working in my garden (not knowing he was there) and blowing his car horn to startle me. Over the years we had lots of interesting conversations. He will be missed.

My husband Bob filled in for Bill when he got ill and could no longer be commander at the VFW in Chesapeake City. We got very close to him. Very recently he was doing some paperwork and needed to have things faxed. He would come into my office and BS while we were doing this. Then he would stop by just to visit. Miss him already!

I would like to send my sympathy's to Bill's family and also to all of his good friends, he was a great guy and always good for a laugh, you could not be around Bill and be in a bad mood, we had so many boating memory's with the gang at the Charlestown Md. Marina, great days and I will never forget them or him. You will always be in my memory's, thank you for being a part of my life.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.
