So sorry to here of Billy's passing. I remember him all the way back to Quarton days. Always smiling, enthusiastic and kind. Sad to think of him gone so soon.

i, too, knew bill back to later quarton days. especially, though, junior year in high school when i wasn't sure of my self as a cross runner. he was always supportive...and never let me take it too seriously...thus, when a tough moment came about he responded by dubbing me 'twinkletoes' gorman. imagine that not sticking for a  life time. good-by, good friend.

Sorry to hear about Bill also.  We used to walk to Quarton school together sometimes.  We both lived on Westwood.  Always a good friend and never had a bad word to say about anybody.

It is so hard to accept when our good friends are gone.  Bill was one of my very best friends from the time we met in Mrs. Egner's 4th grade classroom at Quarton.  We were lucky to be in classes together often sitting in close proximity whether in the back corner of Miss Jelnick's 6th grade room or seated together at a lab table in Mr. Ambrose class senior year.  Bill was always a loyal friend to me through the school years and beyond,  regardless of the other circles of friends we had.  He was one of the funniest people I've ever known and generated lots of laughter for those around him.  I remember fondly double-dates with Bill for Bond movies, pre-prom parties and dinners, picnics at Kensington or days at the beach.  I will always be grateful to Bob Handley for calling me in August 2016 after noticing Bill's Seaholm profile where Bill had mentioned his ALS.  That led to our trip to Columbus to see Bill just weeks before his death.  I will miss BIll.

I am so sorry to hear about Bill.  I remember chatting with him at the last couple reunions and he was full of life and laughter. I was looking forward to seeing him again.  Very sad to learn that he had ALS. Bill, you are missed.
