    I will always remember and am grateful for the trips to the beach in the back of the pick-up, Papa Ginos, the fish resturant, the long ride to Clarkson, shuttling Grandma to shopping, coffee on the couch after a big meal at the Sandbergs, hunting stories (which until I was 15, or so, really shocked me), the ‘bionic knee’ and most of giving each other “the look” after some of Grandma’s unique comments.
    Thank you Bill for being such a great grandfather to me. I will miss you.

    Mr Webber resided in the same nursing home as my mom. He was a very nice man and will be missed. I was always impressed with the dignified manner he dealt with his illness.

    My sympathies for losing such a kind man.

    I unfortunately just saw this now – Bill was my father’s (Brian MacDonald) life long best friend, they grew up living across from each other on Otis Ave. Even after my father moved to DC they still talked daily as if they were across the street from each other still. I knew Bill as Uncle Bill, he was always so much fun. I loved hearing the stories from Dad about their yearly hunting trips. The last time I saw Bill was around 2010 when my father passed. He was gracious enough to let my wife and I crash in his guest room so I could visit our family plot in Braintree. Bill has now joined my father up above and I’m sure are catching up on their stories. Bill – you will be missed.
