If you have the opportunity; you too should try this time:

Bill once asked his Men’s Bible Class at the start of his teaching a lesson (many of whom had known him for 20+ years) to write down a one word, or term, description of him.  Here is now what he collected: Passion; Eager to Help; Friendly and Committed; Passionate; Super Communicative; Persistent; Pilotage (as in Plane, Boat, Orienteering (a Scouting Term); Friendly; Fearless; WebMaster (on church internet); Optimistic; Share; Enthusiasm (for whatever Assignment Is a Great Talent!); Motivational; Nice Dresser; Dedicated; Reaches out and encourages participation and activity;  “I truly appreciate your willingness to push forward; Your talent for being bold and leading has been inspirational.’   

Fortune Cookies have said: You are never selfish with your advice or help.  Your ideas are clever, and you will be rewarded.  You have the makings of a leader.

Bill has been married to Wilann for 44+ years with 1 daughter and has lived in the same home for over 35 years. 

Bill earned his Masters of Accounting Degree from the University of Southern California (1966) and his Bachelor of Arts Degree in Economics from Willamette University (1965).  He earned the following designations:  CPA in 1968, Certificate in Advanced Personal Financial Planning in 1986, Certified Senior Advisor in 2002, Certified IRA Specialist in 2006, and Certified College Planning Specialist in 2007.
   
In the mid-eighties, he served on the statewide Financial Planning and Ethics Committees for the California Society of CPAs and has been an instructor in their continuing education program.  Later Bill sponsored and taught the Wayne State University “How to Start and Run a Profitable Small Business” course in Northern California.

Bill was a board member of Willamette University’s Alumni Association.  Using that experience, I helped create a college type alumni association for Tamalpais High School.  Click here for his Legacy Project.
