Bill came to Princeton from Morristown (N.J.) High School, where he was president of the student council and played varsity basketball and baseball.
At Princeton he majored in politics, ate at Cannon, played interclub sports, and was a member of the Orange Key Society and the Stock Investment Club.
After graduation Bill enrolled in New York University Law School, earning a law degree in 1969. His legal career included service as in-house counsel for two major corporations and as managing partner of the Stamford (Conn.) office of the firm now known as Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman.
A natural athlete, Bill won squash championships at the Princeton Club of New York and club championships in tennis at Innis Arden Country Club in Old Greenwich, Conn. He continued playing tennis regularly until the month before his death.
Always loyal to Princeton, Bill served as a Schools Committee interviewer, Class reunion committee member, and special-gifts solicitor for Annual Giving.
He is survived by his wife, Eileen; children Amanda and Andrew; stepson Daniel; granddaughter Evangeline; brother Edward; and several nieces and nephews. The class extends its heartfelt condolences to them.
