Published in June 8, 2005, issue

Bill died at home March 4, 2005. He was 83.

Born and raised in the New York City area, Bill prepped for Princeton at Allen-Stevenson in New York City and at Choate. He graduated in 1943 from the School of Engineering, where he was elected Phi Beta Kappa. The Navy next claimed his attention and he served as a lieutenant in the Pacific theater during World War II. While on campus, Bill was a member of Colonial Club, and had as roommates at various times Charlie Miner, Dan Ridder, Lin Miller, John Norris, Bonnie Seggerman, and Bartow Farr.

For many years, Bill acted as president of T. Shriver and Co. in New Jersey, a family business. An avid sportsman, Bill raced "Star"-class boats in international competition and excelled in golf. He was a member of the Maidstone Club in East Hampton, N.Y., and later the Rio Mar Country Club of Vero Beach, Fla.

Surviving are his wife of 22 years, the former Marcia Breen; four daughters, Consuelo Hutton, Linda Lamy, Cynthia Mack, and Muriel de Chabert-Ostland; and nine grandchildren.

To the entire family, we offer our most heartfelt condolences.
