Bill was my master teacher at Douglass in 1972. I learned many skills and strategies from his master set of knowledge. He was tough, fair and molded me into a great teacher. Now retired I am enjoying looking back on a grand IA teaching career in part due to Bill. Thanks from one techie to another! RIP. David Johnston, SUCO ‘73.

So sorry for your loss. Cousin Bill was an inspiration to me as a teacher. I enjoyed our educational discussions and his sense of dedication and humor. We both made buttons with our students. I still have the buttons he made for me - one celebrating the 200th anniversary of the USA and one that says "Who Cares?". He was a serious but sensitive man. So very glad we were able to have him in our lives. We will miss him.
