Dear Joe and family.   On behalf of NU Class of 1968, we are so sorry for the loss of our classmate.   Bill was Mr. Class of 68 who loved spending time with us all and being involved in every single get-together we had - and there were many!    For me, I have lost a good friend and parter-in-crime.  God bless you all.

I’m so sad to read of Bill’s passing. My husband and I met him on a cruise to Cuba. We spent many hours on deck 6 (the smoking section) with him, hearing his life stories and sharing ours. We kept in touch, and Bill quickly became a trusted friend. I will miss him forever. I know he loved his family more than anything on earth. Noah, we knew you were a brilliant young man from the beginning of our friendship with him. He was so proud of you! Ryan, I know about you, too. He was so proud of the man you’ve become and the strength you’ve shown through all the losses you’ve experienced. Please accept my deepest condolences and know that I am mourning with you.
