    Bill graduated from Middletown high School in Middletown, RI. His pic in 1970 year book was great.. We knew each other in high school & I always thought he was a nice person. After high school, a bunch of us, including Bill, would hang out together. I am sorry for your loss, he was a gentle & caring person
