Condolence & Memory Journal

Bill was a classmate of mine at Ridley High. I learned new things about him in the obituary. I liked Bill, as we all did, never saw him after graduation, and was proud to know he served our country. Rest In Peace Brother. Bob Crawford

Truly a great man!!! He was my first hire as crossing guard when I became Chief of Police. He was totally devoted to the job and safety of the children. He was truly loved by the children. He had one of the difficult posts because he was responsible for three different bus stops all at the same time. Bill handled it like a pro. Some times his deputy guard would be with him (Lois). Prayers for Bill and condolences to Lois and the family. I'm know your proud !!! Chief Randy McGoldrick (Retired)
