Hi, I'm Christine, Bill's wife.

Bill had generally good health. He had atrial fibrillation about ten years ago, but it resolved and he wasn't on medication. He did, however, have a family history. Two uncles and an aunt passed away in their 40's, but that was about 35 years ago. His cholesterol was a little high, as was his blood pressure, but he wasn't on medication. He had some stress in his work life, but we just went skiing about two weeks ago and he didn't complain of chest pain, tingling or numbness.

Thank you for all the kind words and for sharing your memories. It brings us comfort.

Christine

he looked like a guy who was like thin and 35???

what a shame...that is way to young!!!

Condolonces to him and his family at this time..
Bill and I had an '89 272 Formula when we both joined this site. Since then we sold it an got a '95 336. He just never changed his name. And yes, we kept both boats on the trailer near the launch. We'd launch and retrieve each time--and we were still married...

Christine,
I just got the news from Shirley Dillon(of Cardshark Fame) yesterday, please accept our condolences. I only met you two once, but you made a great impression on us! It is truly sad when we lose someone of Bill's caliber. I hope you and the kids can take comfort in the years you had with him, sometimes that's all we have after a tragedy like this.......

God Bless You Guys,
Paul and Monique
