Just noticed you in the Coast Guard Long Blue Line Spring 2021 TAPS. Learned a lot from you while stationed at Coast Guard Air Station Corpus Christi, TX. Spent a year on Night Check with you as supervisor. Wish I could have located you and been able to talk to you. Love you Brother!

I knew Bill when he worked for Hondo ISD. Such a nice guy. Always enjoyed visiting with him when he came to Meyer Elementary.
My condolences.
