At Princeton Bill was the captain in charge of all the dining halls and captain of the rugby team. After a postgraduate year in London studying advanced economics he returned to Philadelphia, where he continued to play rugby until stopped by a broken jaw and a broken ankle. Wisely, he substituted golf and tennis.
Bill was a founder of Linpro, a real-estate development firm, causing him to move back to Princeton with his wife, Linda, the love of his life. As a devoted member of our class, he became active in many University and class activities, becoming president of the class at our 35th reunion. His extensive charitable interests included Princeton University; the arts, including McCarter Theatre; and the environment.
Linda and Bill traveled the world extensively. For the past several years they had a winter home in Palm Desert, Calif., and they recently moved from Princeton to Austin, Texas, to be near family.
He is survived by his wife, Linda; his children, Erik ’93, Ellie, and Nicole; and five grandchildren. The class extends its condolences to them all.
