  1. In recent years Bill had several opportunities to pass his musical knowledge to his grandson Mitchell while on tour in Western NY. I'm eternally gratefull as his son-in-law for him assisting my son, who obviously gets his musical talent (Double Bass, Guitar, Harmonica, Piano, Drums, Dulcimer) from his grandfather. He'll certainly be missed by his daughter/ my wife Deborah(53) and his other three grand-children (Elise, Jesse, Jaeda) and great-grand daughter (Amerie).
