Bill was known and loved for his integrity and generosity, his gentlemanly charm and dry humor.
Born in New Jersey, he graduated from Maplewood (N.J.) High School. At Princeton, where his father was in the Class of 1920, he studied economics and belonged to Dial. He earned a lieutenant’s commission after artillery training at Fort Sill, Okla., and was in Korea for a year.
Leaving the Army, he started his career in banking by joining the National Newark & Essex Bank. He worked there and at several other New Jersey banks before retiring after 40 years of service as a trust officer.
Bill served our class well. He was chairman of our 45th and 55th reunions, as well as chairman of off-year reunions. He served on the board of several charities, including the Job Haines Home for Unwed Mothers.
Bill was a voracious reader, avid cyclist, and photographer. After retirement he loved traveling with his wife, Lib; vacationing in Maine; and visiting family across the U.S.
Bill is survived by sister Joan; three children from his first marriage, Lynn, Wendy, and William IV; and six grandchildren.
