There was a memorial service at the shelter in Marshall Park on Allen Boulevard in Middleton on Sunday, 17 July, 2011 at 11:00 a.m. (an audio recording can be found here.). Following that, a gathering of friends and family was held at Mid Town Pub to celebrate his life. Later, some people spread through town to several places that were blessed by Bill's musical performances. These were absolutely beautiful, loving gatherings and there were tears and laughs. It was so wonderful to celebrate Bill's life and how he touched each of us! Special thanks go out to the many friends, co-workers, and former in-laws who attended and made such beautiful gifts of flowers and testimonies.

Please, anyone who has photos, recordings, comments regarding Bill or his memorial service is encouraged to submit them to
