September 18th

I worked with Bill at Stanford Engineering for 5 years. He was part of a four person accounting department and he is the last of that department. I remember him for his sense of humor; you never knew what he might say. He was bashful to some degree. In later years I would see him at high school basketball games which he really enjoyed and didn’t hesitate to tell the referees what they were doing wrong. I will miss seeing Bill and talking about the days at Stanford. My condolences to his family.
