So sad to hear of Bill's passing. From what I have read and from his dad's accounts he was certainly a son any parent would be proud of. Wishing peace and comfort for his wife Catherine and his parents Bill and Darlene.

Bill touched so many lives in the Building Safety arena. I had the pleasure of experiencing both his crazy, warped sense of humor and his warm and loving compassion for others. So intelligent, down to earth, and honest! We will miss him.

Let's remember all the good things he did. He was a great husband and supporter of his wife's career. Bill was there to help her when she worked for me at CSC. He volunteered to help her with her most important event that she coordinated each year. He was there to help and support her. This shows how much he loved her. Thanks Bill.
