Dear Janis, Jeannie, Chris and family. So sorry to hear of Bill's passing. Lisa and I want to extend our condolences. Les and Bill were best friends when they worked at ARA. We will never forget how Bill covered the service calls for Les. We had been planning a surprise 50th for Les and Bill jumped right in and went to Ellenville to repair a machine. Will say prayers.

I worked with Bill at the Town of Poughkeepsie and was sorry to hear of his passing.
He was so nice to me and I will never forget that. Even after he retired he would come to say hello and would talk about his grandchildren. I know he will be missed by everyone whose life he touched. I am truly glad that I was able to get to know him.
My condolences to the family.
