Bill was a very decent man. He was devoted to his children and grandkids. I was truly saddened when I heard of his passing. Rest in peace old friend.

Sad to read this. I raced and hung out with Big Bill back in the "Speed & Sport" days. You weren't going to be bored with Bill around! A truly great character. He'll be missed. RIP.
