Memories Timeline


  1. Dear Eleanor, Geoff and Matt – The Sheehan family grieves for you and your terrible loss. Bill shared his zest for life with each of us through all those wonderful years when we lived next door. When I think of him, I picture joy in his face and hear his booming voice. He was a devoted husband and father and a delightful neighbor and friend. We will miss him very much. Our hearts go out to you at this terribly sad time. Fondly, Dianne

  2. I will always remember Bill as a friend and very avid fellow hiker. I especially remember him letting me know that his favorite hike was my Fairbank to Tombstone hike – ending at the Crystal Palace in Tombstone, drinking an ice-cold beer while listening to the band “Bisbee’s Finest” play. He enjoyed life to the max, and I envy him for it. I will miss him.

  3. Dear Eleanor, I am so sorry that you have lost Bill. You and he were such good friends as well as spouses. I know that his loss means a huge hole in your life that will be impossible to fill. I will always remember how kind he was to bring Mark the print of Fenway Park after the Red Sox won the world series. It is on the wall in Mark’s room at the nursing home, and Mark always remembers who gave it to him. He will be saddened to hear about Bill. They shared such a love of sports, and had some great conversations. Please know that you have my utmost sympathy and affection. Best, Shirley

  4. Dearest Eleanor,Geoffrey,Matthew and family— I certainly feel that my life is richer for having met your wonderful Husband and Father. From the first moment he showed up at the Norton’s, and all the times since, — he brought so much energy, joy and laughter with him. What a wonderful, positive man and how we will all miss him so much. I only knew Bill for about 2 years and just on our Wednesdays – but it’s funny how God drops people into your life – sometimes for a very long time and other times for a very short time. I feel very fortunate for the 2 year gift of the company of such a fine gentleman – who was so intelligent; exuberant about ideas and life — and his family. We will all miss him so much. We will be happy for having known him. Lots of love to you all and so much love to you Eleanor. With love, Katherine and Laura Rogers and William, Sr. & William,Jr.

  5. Dear Eleanor, My heart is filled with love, support, and prayers for you and your wonderful family. Bill was a very special man and I was blessed having known both of you for many years…although not long enough. In the early 1980’s I used to visit my friends in RE/MAX Central and Bill would encourage me to get my Real Estate license–in 1985, my life changed–I took his advice. Her I am 25 years later with that same passion for my clients and great appreciation to Bill who encouraged me. Thanks Bill, you made a difference in my world!!! Bill’s wit, his sense of humor, kindness and loving spirit will be remembered and cherished always. I’m only a phone call away Eleanor….you will always be surrounded by those who care. With sympathy, friendship and love, Sharon Zareski

  6. I want to express my sincere sympathy for the loss of your loved one. You can be assured that comfort and hope are found in the pages of the Bible. Revelations 21:4 speaks of a time when sorrow will be no more. This is a wonderful hope during our times of grief and pain. Please take care of yourselves. Sincerely
