I remember the many Fridays and Saturday nights I spent with Bill, he was a great person and a lot of fun to be with. The many nites in Bills basement we played oh so many board games such as Stratego, Civil War, Gettysburg and the ever so popular chess. I can attribute my chess prowess and reaching tournament level to Bill and those nites, I miss you Bill
Bill was in my driver's ed car (along with John Foti) and I found out what a classy person he was.High quality personality. I remember his comment "it's hard to find a decent new car under $ 2000 anymore." I guess we can easily add a zero to that ( plus) today. Rest in peace, Bill.

Bill and I "went steady" for a while. We sailed on Lake Michigan in his open hull boat (and usually capsized... we knew the Coast Guard quite well)... and on his grandfather's yacht, Quiviver. Good times. I rememberr the sadness I felt when Bill Bowman called me right before the 45th anniversary, Bill had suddenly died but had been looking forward to the reunion. I had a lovely email conversation with his widow in the weeks after. Miss you, Bill.
