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. :)
(and watching the weather channel)

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.

I don't know if anyone will see this. My name is Elizabeth Sanchez and I went to 1st & 2nd grade with William at Yucca Elementary in Alamogordo NM, as well as CCD (Father James B. Hay) for our First Holy Communion. Over 30 yrs later, I have never forgotten William. He was one of my best friends back then, and I have some wonderful memories. I am so heartbroken to have found this; I have been looking for William

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.

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.

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
