    Bill was a mentor and great friend to me. Although we we political adversaries, we shared much in common. The love of music, the tradition of Special Export beer, deep interest in hight/geeky tech and food!

    I will miss you man!

    Bill was a great friend and will be missed. We lived close to him when he was in Inver Grove – whenever we had an auto emergency, Bill was there to help us. Bill was always there to do lights for Momar – wherever we were playing. A great man!

    So sorry to Deb and anyone who knew Bill. I met Bill and my wife at the same time in 1974. I was home on vacation from the Army and they we’re working at Pizza Man. As you can imagine I have enjoyed some great times with Bill. Good Buddy I love you and will miss you dearly. See you on the other side.
