Bill andI had numerous good times. We lived close to each other and played sports togeather at MHS. We did double date at times and hung out a lot. His red hair was was his traid mark and he was always trying to get the coaches to let him let it grow long. Last time I talked with Bill he told me that at the last reunion you gave him a comb, having lost his hair by then and  his feeling were hurt but more he missed that great head of hair.

Now we will miss him and and wish we would have stayed in touch and shared those memories.

I was just sorting through some photos on my computer and found some pictures of Bill taken at the Labor Day Parade in Muskego a few years ago.  My mother and I parked at Strasser's gas station, and pretty soon we bumped into Bill.  We had a nice time reminiscing about high school days and our lives since then.  Bill gave my mother some special attention, which she thoroughly enjoyed.  I have a photo of Bill standing next to my mother, with his arm around her.  Needless to say, he dwarfed her.  I think my sister Dianne, went to a prom with him.  It seems like our list of deceased class mates is far too long.    All the more reason to treasure the time we do spend with each other.  I really enjoy the class luncheons, and I live three and a half hours away in Davenport, Iowa.

Bill was one of my best friends also.  A very funny guy.

I got this from Amanda Baily:  He was drafted in 1964 and served 18th months. 8 of these months were in Vietnam. His unit even earned the Presidential Unit Citation.
