I was shocked and saddened to learn of Bill's passing. Bill and I grew up together in Coalport. We were very good friends, and we spent a lot of time together having fun doing lots of crazy things. Riding bikes, go-karts (homemade of course), playing ball, Boy Scouts, playing in the strip cuts......I could go on and on. I have not lived in the Coalport area since high school, but whenever I had an opportunity to get back for a visit, I always looked forward to spending some time with Bill, catching up and reminiscing about our good times together. Bill was a best friend and he will always play a part in my memories of growing up in Coalport.
