Bill became a very important mentor for me when we met in the 1970's. His memory should be for a blessing for many.

Bill was a good caring man. He helped me to grow in a time when I was young and unsure. He has been a good friend for over 48 years, through the good times and great adventures and through the bad times. He could always be counted on when needed. Many friends found each other through him. And we became a family of friends. We experienced great joy in the adventures, traveling together, communicating deeply with love, and of course we can’t forget the amazing Christmas feasts, begun To invite those who had no where to go on Christmas and then everyone wanted to be there. Several hundred at its height. He cooked all the food. Like Babette’s feast. Thank God for the experience of Bill. My good friend.

I was in one of Bill’s groups in the early 70’s. He helped me with my self esteem and confidence. He did a reading at my wedding two weeks before the Sunday night masa’s ended. I thank him for that. It’s too bad he passed away during a pandemic. I’m sure hundreds of people would be at his funeral mass, including me. He touched that many people. God bless him.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

My deepest condolences to the family and friends of Bill. Bill will be greatly missed at SST. Peter & Paul, not only for his many years of service as a liturgical minister, but also for his always present smile and loving words of welcome to all who entered. A very fond memory I have of Bill occurred at a 7 PM mass quite a few years ago The priest hadn't shown up to preside and we were perplexed as to what to do. Bill stepped up and said he would help. He went up to the podium and shared with everyone that it looks like we have no priest tonight and asked if we wanted to, he would lead us in a prayer service. He then read the Gospel to us and gave a "homily" that made me feel like the Lord was speaking to us through him. We closed with the "Our Father" and the hand shake of Peace and I think everyone that was there it seemed to go up to him to thank him for such a moving prayer service. I will miss him greatly.
