While I don't remeber Bill from our senior class it bothered me there was no information on his profile. Since Bill made the Ultimate Sacrifice while serving his country I thought I would share with others the information I was able to find on his service to our country.

I remember Bill and I liked him.  He was a good guy and I'm sorry we lost him.  RIP, Bill.

Thank you for posting Bill's picture.  We were classmates at Cherokee and then throughout junior high and high school.  Nice guy.  He left school early, as I recall, and joined the Marines.   RIP and Semper Fi!, Billy.
