    Bill was my next door neighbor growing up in Claymont. He was always kind to me as a hanging around kid - a friend of his brother. He loved Elvis and taking car of his car. May he Rest In Peace and in the arms of his Lord.

    We will miss Bill, he was a unique individual with a kind demeanor and obvious love for Millie. We always knew when Bill was behind the garage with Gussy as his delightful pipe smoke would waif across the street . God bless your soul Bill and rest in eternal peace ✌️.

    It has been a very sad few weeks for me as Bill and Millie's neighbor to have lost a great neighbor and friend. We shared the love of our dogs. I could always count on Bill to walk Lucy for me when I was away any great length of time. And his Gus was his buddy! Bill's summer tomatoes were always a great surprise and delicious! The toot of his car horn as he passed by, along with his smile and wave will be forever missed! God bless you, Bill!
