I'm terribly saddened to learn of Bill's passing. As shortstop, I played next to our slick-fielding and dependable third baseman Bill on the 1969 Anderson High School baseball team . While we didn't stay in close touch as the years passed, I've always thought fondly of Bill as a dear friend and valued teammate. May your family find peace and comfort as you carry Bill in your hearts.

Bill was one of the "Good Guys". I will always remember the great year we had together in 1969 with the Indian baseball team that won the the NCC and regional championships. He was one of the best teammates I ever had. Please accept my condolences.
