    So very sad to read about Bill’s passing. I knew him through our employment at the Paper Mill. A great all around guy. May he Rest in Peace!

    Bill was a great soldier and true American patriot! I soldiered with Bill in Co C (Gladstone) and remember being impressed with his quiet leadership the first time I met him. Our loss is heaven’s gain.

    As a member of the 107th Engineer Battalion I appreciated Bill’s contribution to Company C and the Battalion. RIP

    Condolences to the family. Bill & I served together – 3rd Plt, Co C (Gladstone). He was a great Platoon Sergeant that guided many junior officers and mentored many enlisted men who excelled in their careers. Rest in Peace my friend.

    Deepest condolences for Bill. He was a classmate of mine at Holy Name as well as a fellow guardsman. May he rest in peace.
