A longtime resident of Madison, N.J., Bill died peacefully April 11, 2020, of complications of COVID-19. He was 68.

The son of a Navy pilot, Bill had a peripatetic youth in New Jersey, Georgia, Florida, Texas, Washington, and Alaska, graduating from Lenape Regional High in Medford, N.J. He majored in economics and was a member of Quadrangle Club. He went on to earn a law degree from Georgetown and an MBA at Wharton.

After several years in law and in corporate planning, Bill had a long career in investment management, with J. Bush & Co. and Keswick Management. He was deeply respected by his peers for his talent and dedication.

Bill was a passionate golfer and was dedicated to the Class of  ’73 — as vice president, treasurer, and for many years, on the reunion finance committee. He was also pivotal in organizing and running our Class 50th Birthday Party.

Bill is survived by his wife of 35 years, Mary Ellen; sisters Judie and Penny; two nephews, and their families.

Those closest to him would say that Bill was a wonderful curmudgeon — intellectually curious, kind, and modest — who had a wry sense of humor. He will be greatly missed by the Class of 1973.
