Bill and his twin brother, Chuck, came to Princeton from Steubenville (Ohio) High School, where he was all-state in football, but sadly was deemed unable to play for us because of previous injuries. At Princeton he majored in religion and dined at Campus, where he excelled in IAA athletics. He was also a superior golfer throughout his life, carrying a near scratch handicap for many years.

In 1961 Bill married his first wife, Sally, with whom he had two daughters. In 1962 he earned an MBA at the University of Pittsburgh and went to work for Bell Telephone Co. of Pennsylvania, where he spent his entire working career.

After retirement in the mid-eighties, Bill increasingly devoted his time to work within the Presbyterian Church, natural enough for a religion major and son and grandson of Presbyterian ministers. Bill later moved to Sarasota, where golf and church continued to fill his days. 

Unfortunately, he suffered a succession of debilitating health setbacks in recent years and died Jan. 31, 2021. He is survived by his wife, Joan; two daughters; twin brother Chuck ’60; and their families. We send our best wishes to them all.
