I worked with Bill for many years at Elk Grove High as a fellow vocational coordinator. We always enjoyed lively conversations and a lot of laughs. Bill taught me about investing my money and I am happy that I did what he said. I know for sure that he really loved his wife and children because he would tell us about his hopes and dreams for all of you. He was very proud of his service to our country and we appreciated him for that. He will be missed but his legacy of great teaching, serving his country, and adoring his family will always be in our hearts and minds. God bless you all. With much sympathy, Judi Breen

I had the privilege of knowing and working with Bill in the 'Business Technology and Life Studies' department at Elk Grove High School. He touched many student and staff lives with his unassuming, thorough and chivalrous ways. May he rest in peace.
