Bill was a dedicated , caring, soft spoken and respected teacher.. I always looked forward to his special Christmas card. He took
the time to write a beautiful verse that was both meaningful and spiritually uplifting. His spirit will always stay in my heart. May he Rest In Peace.

I crossed paths with Bill at Pelham Memorial High School. I didn't know him very well but do fondly recall a few conversations before he retired where his gentle spirit was evident. I was a new teacher and he impressed me with his quiet strength. And I had forgotten about his love of poetry, but enjoyed remembering that about him. My condolences to his family. May he rest in peace.

I taught with Bill in the English Department at Pelham Memorial H.S. for almost 30 years. He was a wonderful teacher, colleague and friend. He brought to teaching and to life, his love and knowledge of literature and philosophy. I will miss his intelligent conversation, his good sense of humor (and boisterous laugh), and his kindness. I spoke with him a month or so before he died, and was planning on calling him back. I very much regret not doing so. He always spoke warmly of his nephews. I extend my condolences to them and to the rest of the family.

Please accept my most sincere condolences on Bill's passing. I worked with Bill at Pelham Memorial High School many years ago and I remember how kind and helpful he was to me as a young staff member just starting out. I work in the counseling dept and there was one student we shared who, sadly, had lots of problems and got into quite a bit of trouble with the law. Bill was always compassionate, yet firm, in his expectations of this student and I always felt he provided some well-needed guidance and good example for this particular young man. He was kind to me and was a very well respected colleague to us all. God bless you, ay your family heal from his loss, and may Bill rest in the peace of Christ.

I have wonderful memories of Bill from the time where we worked together at the Desmond Campus. He was such a kind, thoughtful man. We had many wonderful and enlightening conversations. I am so sorry to learn of his passing.
