Billy was always the sweetest guy. I had the biggest crush on him in high school. We weren't in touch after High School, but I never forget Billy's sweet, kind, gentle nature. He was one of the best. RIP my friends and my deepest condolences to the family.

"I stood watching as the little ship sailed out to sea.
The setting sun tinted its white sails with a golden light.
And as it disappeared from view, a voice at my side whispered,
He is gone.
But the sea was a narrow one, and on the furthest shore,
A little band of friends had gathered to watch in happy expectation.
Suddenly, they caught sight of a tiny sail. And at the very
Moment when my companion had whispered, he is gone,
A glad shout went up in joyous welcome with the words, YES,
here he comes!"

So sorry for your loss Bill and thank you for all of your hard work helping our Community.
Your Family Members were your Mail Route Residents that you took care of as well as your colleagues
at the Clearfield Post Office. When my dear (I can't seem to write the words) late husband, Jim Pinto,
was Postmaster, he always knew that he could count on you Bill. You really lived the Post Office Letter Carrier motto of "Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night." A Memorial donation has been made to St. Francis School.
Sincerely,
Nancy McClure Pinto
Clearfield, PA

Billy,
I'll always remember you coming to my basketball games and my dance recitals and cheering me on from the crowd. I'll remember our dinners at Eat n' Park or visiting you and your dog in Clearfield when we'd pass through to see my dad. You loved my brother and me so much and we adored you. You were an extension of our family and my heart misses you. I will always think of you fondly and hope you are resting, playing with your dog, and riding your bike. Thanks for being a wonderful friend and our 'Uncle Billy'

Billy,
I know you were always tormented by your Vietnam experience. I could tell whenever we met. You would hug me and get all teary eyed which caused me to react the same way. Guess it was because we shared the same memories, combat w/the USMC, being wounded and a long recovery time. I can remember us as kids and high school buddies. Then the few times we met after the war.
I know you are at peace now and I know we will meet again. Semper Fi my friend.
