A Turtle’s Tribute:

Bill grew up in Formosa and Salzburg, Austria. Very close to his family in Philadelphia, he had one brother and one sister. His father died in June 1992, six months prior to Bill’s death.

He earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Linguistics from the University of Dallas in 1964. He spoke nine languages and three Chinese Dialects.

Bill was an Investigator for the Department of Defense, worked for the Timeguard Engineering Corporation, a pipeline service company in Dallas and Abquaq, Saudi Arabia. He also worked in sales for the Dallas Morning News and for the Budget Car Rental Corporation.

Bill loved to travel, and cook. He played Moonlight Sonata on the piano better than anybody.

Bill was very dog and cat friendly, and always rooted for the underdog, so to speak. The one in the picture is his favorite, Taffy.

Bill passed away on December 6, 1992.
