Bill was my instructor at Bronson in the late 60's. His goal was to make all of his students a success in and out of the profession. All of his students would go on to pass the radiology exam and have the opportunity to a rewarding career. Bill probably never realized how many lives he was part of. My prayers go out to the family.

Bill is an inspiration to me. He was so dedicated to Bronson, he would volunteer extra days if the schedule was not full. Once a month he would come down to the office to fill in his time card. He always had some cute story to tell. I recall the baseball theme recognition event a little differently. I recall that he came dressed in a nice suit. When he came in to the room, saw all the baseball decorations and me dressed as a catcher, he went out to his car to get his baseball clothes he kept there. He changed his clothes. You are missed!

Bill was a very loyal, dedicated Bronson volunteer. He cared for the patients, visitors and employees so much that he would arrive two hours before his official shift. I'll never forget how much he enjoyed the volunteer recognition dinner that had a baseball theme. He arrived in his uniform, carried a mitt and posed for pictures like a champ.

To the family of Bill, I am sorry for your loss, but happy to know that he is home again with his Norma. My prayers are with you all. Someday we will all be with them again. I can't wait to give Norma and Bill a big hug ?
