    I’m shocked and saddened that you’ve left us so soon, buddy!! You were a wonderful friend from the day I met you back in 1978 when we were students at Lebanon Valley College until the unfortunate day of your passing..so many memories, my friend..too many to list here!! All I can say is I miss you, Bill..RIP, buddy.

  • My family met Bill at the UD Ice Hockey games. He was very loud and passionate about the game. He took my youngest under his wing and taught him alot about the game, and Nick Purse began helping at the games. We all became fast friends. You will be missed dearly. God got another wonderful angel. RIP

  • It was a pleasure knowing and working with Bill at Discover. He was a kind person who liked helping others. He cared a lot about the quality of his work which I’m sure translated to every aspect of his life. He spoke often of his family and his love for them. He will be missed.
