He was a hell of a ball player back in his day. Rest in peace Billy
I was saddened to hear about the passing of Bill. I played ball with Bill for several years. He was an outstanding player and he had a great attitude. I eventually taught several of his children while I was teaching at South High School. Bronco Bill gone way too soon but never forgotten. Gizaagii’in aapiji niikaanis Bill.?
