I remember your mother bouncing you on her knee & singing "Where have you been Billy Boy Billy Boy" and you were laughing. Now you get to see her again.

I am so very grateful for Bill's service to Barberton Kiwanis and the Barberton community. As the current President of Barberton Kiwanis and a fellow Wabash graduate, I know that his service left a lasting impact. The legacy of a scholarship will make a difference for generations.

I first met Bill when I joined Barberton Kiwanis many years ago. It was always great to see Bill when he came back to Barberton, OH to play golf with Loreto George and Al Casino, members of the Kiwanis Club.

I first met Bill on February 10, 2016. Betty and Bill were hosting a small dinner party in honor of my mother's 85th birthday. Bill was a so kind, the perfect host, engaging, fun, entertaining, intelligent. It was a wonderful evening spent with mom's close and dear friends.
