    You will be missed Bill! I will always cherish the memories I have of you from my childhood, your love of the rain, and your passion for writing and reading of which we shared (I still have the copy of “The Hobbit “ you gave me). May the Lord be with your family during this time.

    Bill and I taught at Baker Road Alternative High together. The kids loved him, and they nicknamed him “Deeter!” He was a good, kind, gentle teacher and friend. I am so sad to hear of his passing. I was lucky to know him.

  4. Karen Kaminski says:

    Bill loved working there with all of you and his students.
