Memories & Candles
William and I dated around the mid 90's.
I must have been working down from Sparks on 6th Street. William was a very sweet guy that I wish I could've had a last conversation with.
We would go dancing at Proteus and Area 52.
He could watch the weather channel for hours which drove me crazy. The last time I saw him was in passing around 2001 near Barton Springs. He had a nice sincere smile.
Love you William. I hope you you are dancing wherever you are. :)

Family and Friends -
My heart is broken, as tonight I learned of the passing of a great man. I met William in 2000 while living in Austin. We continued a close friendship until I moved, then eventually lost touch over the years. Although I often thought of William, Wills as I referred to him, tonight was different. While sitting on my sofa I had an overwhelming feeling to reach out to Wills. I began my search online. When I could

William was a great brother . I miss him every day . I can not believe he has been gone for five years . You were never surprised to hear that William was bleaching his hair, wearing a moo moo or traveling to some place were they had the best of something . He was a good friend who always pushed me to do my best . We all miss you Will !

I went to Yucca Elementary with William in the 1st and 2nd Grade. In fact, in his first grade class picture, I'm the little girl in denim on his right.
William was one of my best friends, and girl-boy friendships are virtually unheard of so young. We played during recess, and had two other boy and girl friends. We had nicknames for each other. William and I also went to Fr. James B. Hay School for First Holy Communion classes.

My deepest condolence to William's family and friends. I met William at Quackenbush Coffee in Austin when he was in college. We dated. He gave me a CD by the band, LUNA. William was gentle. His kindness opened my heart. I have thought about him over the years, always a happy current flows when the mind turns to our times together and to William's gentle, loving character.

Will, you were the most wonderful and special nephew any aunt and uncle could hope to have. The times we spent in California were so full of laughter and joy. We will miss your smile, your laughter and your spirit. We love you and miss you, but will forever have you in our hearts and memories.

To the family of William: I am sad and sorry for your loss. I didn't know William well--he interviewed with me for a job in my program at the City of Austin back in 2001 (perhaps?) I wanted to hire him BADLY, but just before I was to offer him the job, the position was frozen. He was so persistent in chasing after that job! I enjoyed talking to him every time he called to pester me about it.......for this

Dear William, Your positive energy and hopefulness always shone through, even when the forecast was dim, and the questions outnumbered the answers. Your strong convictions, your offbeat humor, your distinctive personal style, and your absolute courage will continue to inspire me and all those who were privileged to know and love you. Thank you for enriching our lives in a most extraordinary way.
