Bill was a warm and generous man who gave his time to youth hockey in Arlington training an entire generation of goalies long after his own children had left the program. In the many years that Bill was a coach for my children's hockey teams I never once heard a bad word from his mouth. Bill you will be missed.

My son just started hockey this year and became interested in being a goalie and was being coached by Bill. I didn't know him very well, but he seemed like such a great guy and my son loved being coached by him. So sad.
