2954 STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. -- Former Staten Islander Jane Barbara Jacobson, 81, a longtime advocate for the disabled, died Wednesday in Keswick Nursing Home in Baltimore, where she had been a resident for the past two years.

Born with cerebral palsy in Great Kills, Jane Rosenberg graduated from New Dorp High School and earned a bachelor's degree in sociology in 1955 from Wagner College, Grymes Hill. That same year, she married Edward Benjamin Jacobson, who also had cerebral palsy, and together they raised two children in Great Kills. In 1984, the couple moved to New Springville.

In the 1960s, Mrs. Jacobson volunteered at the former Willowbrook State School and in the mid-1970s, she was a social worker at the International Center for the Disabled in Manhattan.

She also volunteered for the Borough President's office and often attended meeting to advocate for the rights of the disabled.

Her husband of 48 years, Edward, died in 2003.

Mrs. Jacobson is survived by a son, Steven; a daughter, Lisa, and four grandchildren.

2955 STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. -- Sylvia Jacobson, a former West Brighton resident who was integral to the sex education program in the city's public schools, died Friday in the Joseph L. Morse Geriatric Center, West Palm Beach, Fla., of pneumonia. The Advance Woman of Achievement, Class of 1983, was 86 years old.

Born Sylvia Steinberg in the Bronx, Mrs. Jacobson moved to Staten Island when a teenager and attended Curtis High School. She earned a bachelor of arts degree from Hunter College in Manhattan and a master of science from Wagner College, Grymes Hill.

After a two-year stint as a writer at the former Journal-American newspaper during World War II, Mrs. Jacobson launched a 20-year distinguished career as an educator after the birth of her two sons. She started as a teacher at PS 45 and later Prall Intermediate School, both in West Brighton, before switching to the former District 31 office of the city's Board of Education, where she was coordinator of the family living/sex education program on Staten Island.

She wrote much of the curriculum for this citywide program, and was so instrumental to its success that the city brought her back as a consultant to conduct parent and teacher workshops on human sexuality. She was even interviewed about the program for Japanese and Italian magazines. Although she made her home on the Island, Mrs. Jacobson preferred to work in some of the poorest neighborhoods in the city, like Brooklyn's Bedford-Stuyvesant, where parents most needed help.

In 1983, the Advance honored her as a Woman of Achievement.

Mrs. Jacobson's service was not limited to the schools. She was an active volunteer and served on the board of the United Jewish Appeal, the Visiting Nurse Association and Meals on Wheels -- she was president from 1979 to 1981 and expanded the program to serve seven times as many people. The Meals on Wheels program she left behind remains to this day one of the most successful and efficient in the city.

She was also president of the Sisterhood of Congregation Temple Emanu-El in Port Richmond.

"She was just a very driven person," said her son, William Jacobson. He added that even after retiring with her husband to Greenacres, Fla., in 1994, she remained an active volunteer and pursued her loves of golf, tennis, bridge and travel until suffering a disabling stroke in 1999.

"We knew each other for about 70 years, and we were married for 66 of those; that makes quite a couple," said her husband, Arthur. "We were as close at the end as we were in the beginning."

Together with her husband she crossed the globe and took several trips to China, Russia, Israel and Italy, and adored spending time with her great-grandson, 1-year-old Alexander Spencer.

In addition to her husband, Arthur, and son William, she is survived by another son, Richard; two grandchildren and her great-grandson.

The funeral was at noon yesterday at Star of David of the Palm Beaches in West Palm Beach, Fla., followed by entombment on the grounds.

SYLVIA JACOBSON Sylvia Jacobson, 86 years old, passed away on July 3, 2009. She is survived by her husband of 65 years, Arthur, sons William (Kathryn) and Richard (Janet), grandchildren Matthew (Meredith) Jacobson and Jessica (Shayne) Spencer and the pride of her life, her one year old great grandson Alexander, who will forever celebrate his birthday on the anniversary of her passing. Also mourning is her trusted and loyal aide of many years, Cynthia. Mrs. Jacobson, who born Sylvia Steinberg in the Bronx, NY moved to Staten Island as a teenager and met her husband at Curtis High School. They married after he graduated from Bucknell University and during his distinguished service in the U. S. Air Force. She received her Bachelor of Arts degree in English from Hunter College and a Master of Science degree from Wagner College. Following her graduation, Mrs. Jacobson worked as a writer during WW II for the former Journal American newspaper. Following the birth of her sons, she began her 20 year career as an educator. After her early years in the classroom, Mrs. Jacobson moved to the administrative offices of the New York City Board of Education where she undertook one of the most difficult programs ever to be introduced to the curriculum. She was appointed as the coordinator of the City's family living/sex education program. Following its adoption, Mrs. Jacobson was interviewed for stories that appeared in Japanese and Italian magazines. Her success in handling this potentially explosive topic became apparent when, following her retirement, school officials asked her to return as a consultant to conduct parent and teacher workshops on human sexuality. Her favorite place to work was not the suburbs of Staten Island but the inner City areas of Bedford Stuyvesant where she could bring the program to parents in the poorest neighborhoods of the City. Volunteer work consumed Mrs. Jacobson after completing the rewriting of the New York City Family Living program. She was energized by the idea of doing something for people who needed just a helping hand to get started so Mrs. Jacobson joined the boards of the United Jewish Appeal, the Visiting Nurses Association and Meals on Wheels for which she served as President from 1978 to 1981. During her service, and with very limited resources, the program expanded its reach to seven times the number of those initially served. The program continues to this day as one of the most successful and cost efficient Meals on Wheels in the City. She served also as President of the Sisterhood of Congregation Temple Emanu-El. In 1983 she was honored by the Staten Island Advance as a Woman of Achievement for her numerous contributions to the community. Mr. and Mrs. Jacobson moved to Florida permanently in 1994 where they continued their mutual love for golf, tennis, bridge and traveling. Throughout their time together they saw a great deal of the world including multiple trips to China, Russia, Israel and Italy. Despite her disabling stroke suffered in 1999, her best friend and Husband dedicated his life to caring for his wonderful Wife and our loving Mother, Grandmother and Great-grandmother.

2956 Stay Well. Do Good Work. Keep in Touch. G-d Bless America. Shalom. These five phrases were spoken whenever departing— whether after a family get-together or at the end of a telephone conversation— by Dr. Leonard A. Burgin, who died on February 12, 2011, at the age of 84. These phrases were more than words, they were a motto of how Dr. Burgin lived his life and what made him so special to his family and friends.

Born in Cincinnati, Ohio, Dr. Burgin was the son of the late Sylvia and Sam Burgin. His parents had immigrated to the United States separately in 1920 and met in Cincinnati at an English-speaking class offered to immigrants.

Graduating cum laude from Walnut Hills High School, Dr. Burgin continued his education at the University of Cincinnati, where he graduated Phi Beta Kappa in 1947 with a Bachelor of Science. He was a member of Phi Eta Sigma, a national honor society for first-year college students. Dr. Burgin then went on to the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine where he graduated in 1950. He interned in Internal Medicine at Kings County Hospital in New York and later served as a Resident Physician at the former Cincinnati General Hospital.

Leonard Burgin met June Jaffe while she was working at the University of Cincinnati Gastric Lab. They were married in 1953 and moved to Boston where he was a Resident Physician at Boston City Hospital. Next stop was a Fellowship in Hematology at Duke University Hospital, followed by a return to Boston where he worked with the world-renowned Hematologist, Dr. William Dameshek at Tufts University Hospital. This work influenced Dr. Burgin to specialize in Hematology and Internal Medicine.

His study was interrupted by the Korean War when he was drafted in the Doctor's Draft and assigned to Madigan Army Hospital in Tacoma, Wash. Dr. Burgin served his country for two years as a Captain in the Medical Corps before returning to Cincinnati to start his medical practice.

In his free time, Dr. Burgin enjoyed gardening, traveling, playing bridge, listening to the opera and spending time with family and friends. He was an avid reader of The American Israelite and was known to read the paper each week "cover to cover." He was also a longtime member of the Isaac M. Wise Temple and especially enjoyed celebrating the Jewish holidays with his family. In his own childhood he had a traditional upbringing where Yiddish was often heard in the house. He became a Bar Mitzvah and was well versed in Hebrew. Dr. Burgin enjoyed Shabbat dinners, and wearing his special yarmulke as he recited the Kiddush each Friday night. He enjoyed leading Seders and took his job seriously – including growing the horseradish for the Seder plate himself. And he was truly blessed to participate in the Bar and Bat Mitzvahs of all five of his grandchildren.

Dr. Burgin volunteered at Jewish Family Service in their adoption program and served as a judge at the Walnut Hills High School Science Fair. He retired from private practice and immediately went back to work part-time at the Veteran's Hospital in Fort Thomas, Ky., before fully retiring in 2009.

Reflections from Dr. Burgin's children: "Shalom is a unique word in that it means both hello and goodbye. It is a fitting end to a life's motto. While we say goodbye to a very special man, we also say hello as we welcome all he gave us throughout his lifetime. He is with us forever."

Surviving relatives include his wife of 58 years, June Burgin; his children, Lynn (Stuart Goldstein) Burgin of Portland, Or., Lester (Margie) Burgin, Cynthia Burgin and Seth Burgin; his grandchildren, Andrew and Douglas Goldstein, Leah, Emma and Jay Burgin; his twin sister, Phyllis Burgin and his younger sister, Esther (Herbert) Rose of Sarasota, Fla.

2957 STEIN--Claire A., died peacefully at home on May 9. Eight months earlier, she joyfully celebrated her 90th birthday in the presence of her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren, along with other family and friends. Born Anita Claire Alpern, she was sometimes known as A-Claire or acorn to her childhood friends. She was the daughter of Milton Alpern and Henrietta Nathanson Alpern, and grew up in Brooklyn. She graduated from James Madison High School and Adelphi College, but of all her educational experience she valued most her primary school years at Ethical Culture School in Brooklyn. While in college, her sorority sister and best friend, Lucille Stein, introduced Claire to Lucille's brother Howard. Claire and Howard were married less than a year later, and remained the loves of each other's lives for 63 years, until Howard's death in 2006. They were separated from one another only during World War II, when Howard served in the army in Europe, while Claire stayed on the home front, pregnant with their first child, Brad. As a young wife and mother, Claire studied sculpture with Robert Cronbach and at the Art Students' League. She was a sculptor working in wood carving, plaster modeling for casting, and ultimately, direct metal welding. She was proud to have been praised by a plumber for the quality of her "bead" or weld joint. From 1967 to 1987 she was Executive Director of the National Sculpture Society. She learned the art of making hooked rugs, and enjoyed making pictorial rugs that touched on aspects of family life, notably including the family country home at Copake, New York. For all her interest in art and all her artist friends, her family was always the most important to her. She was a great listener and reader. She rejoiced at the arrival of grandchildren and then great-grandchildren, and loved looking for birthday presents for them all. Her sister Marilyn Alpern Gorlin and brother Buddy Alpern pre-deceased her. She is survived by her brother Nubby Alpern, her sisters-in-law Lucille Stein Kantor and Mildred Alpern, her son Bradford Stein and daughter-in-law Mary Grace Stein, and her daughter Wendy A. Stein and son-in-law Bart Friedman. She is also survived by grandchildren, Elizabeth Ruark, Zachary Stein, Alexander Stein, Benjamin Alpern Friedman and Jacob Stein Friedman, as well as great-grandchildren Isabel Stein, Siena Ruark, Thalia Ruark and Henry Stein. Alpern, Anita Claire (I7111)
2958 STEIN--Howard M., died on October 10, of lung cancer, just short of his 91st birthday. A month before, he had been actively gardening and regularly driving 120 miles to the country. Son of Maurice Stein and Esther Zechnowitz Stein, Howard grew up in Brooklyn and attended Boys' High School. He graduated from the University of Michigan and was a lifelong fan of its athletic teams. After serving in the medical unit of the United States Army, where he was active in the European theatre of World War II, he entered his family's hat and accessories business and was its president for many years, later joining the family firm of HMS Productions. Many interests enriched Howard's life, and he enriched others with his participation. For years he and a group of friends enthusiastically made and bottled wine, but only Howard championed its taste enough to drink it. An avid reader, he supported three libraries and read aloud faithfully to his wife of 63 years, the former Anita Claire Alpern. In retirement he took up silversmithing, and produced beautiful tablewares and jewelry for friends and family. His various gardens were a joy, from the prized rhododendron he rooted from a cutting, to a quarter-acre of pumpkins, grown so his grandchildren could come to a pumpkin-picking party. Passionately in love with his wife Claire, this love illuminated his life, and dazzled everyone caught in its glow. In addition to his wife, he is survived by his son, M. Bradford Stein and daughter-in-law Mary Grace Pennisi Stein, by his daughter Wendy Alpern Stein and sonin-law Bart Friedman, by five grandchildren, Elizabeth Stein Ruark and her husband John Ruark, Zachary Stein and his wife Margaret Chang, Alexander Stein, Benjamin and Jacob Friedman and two great-grandchildren, Isabel Stein and Siena Ruark. Stein, Howard Martin (I7587)

Stephen is survived by his wife, Suzy; brother, Jonathan; children, Charlie and Jo; and grandchildren, Juliet and Nate. Charnas, Stephen (I23776)

Professionally, Steve was a salesman and entrepreneur in the Garment Industry. With a strong work ethic and dedicated approach, Steve joined his father's company, Hammer Brothers, in 1961. He took over the business in 1990 and, ran the firm from its offices in the Kansas City River Market with his youngest son, Daniel.

Steve loved spending time with family and friends. He and Susan enjoyed traveling and his most beloved pastimes were spending long weekends at his lake home in Camdenton, Missouri, and fixing anything that needed fixing… and even a few things that didn't! His most special role in life was serving as "Poppi" to his six adoring grandchildren with whom no amount of time was enough.

2966 STEVEN LEE LOPATA The world lost one of their grand storytellers on March 5, 2018, when Steven Lee Lopata succumbed to a long battle with Cardiac Disease at St. Vincent's Infirmary in Little Rock, Arkansas, going peacefully to sleep. He was provided expert long-term care by St. Vincent's distinguished Cardiac Intensive Care Unit to whom the family is deeply indebted.

Steven was born on May 24, 1942, to Stanley and Lucy Mayer Lopata in Newark City, New Jersey. He is survived by his spouse of 41 years Frances Gabelmann Lopata; children Lyle Cameron (& Zoe) Howell of Gonzales, Texas and Sammi Howell (& Chuck) Owens of Los Alamos, New Mexico and "borrowed" daughter Marcia (& Kyle) Lambert; grandchildren Christopher and Arielle Owens of Albuquerque, New Mexico; siblings James (& SuAnne) Lopata of Chicago, Illinois, Roger (& Cynthia) Lopata of Wynnewood, Pennsylvania and Lusette "Andy" (& Ed) Smith of Great Falls, Virginia; and many cousins, nieces, nephews and extended family members whom he loved very much.

He was preceded in death by his parents.

He had many informally adopted kids that he helped through college. He was a volunteer teacher at LOGOS high school in St. Louis. He was known as "Grampa Stevie" to many kids in New Mexico since he and Fran traveled to New Mexico frequently, never missing a grandkid's birthday and attending many of their sporting events. This included an above-and-beyond the call of duty trip to Boise, Idaho, for a championship high school girls' hockey tournament carrying all the stinky hockey bags in his vehicle. He fondly reminisced about serving as a chaperone for the girls' rugby tour through Ireland where the girls were undefeated on foreign soil!

Steve graduated from Horton Watkins High School in Ladue, Missouri, and attended chemical engineering classes at Washington University in St. Louis before volunteering to serve in the army in Viet Nam. He served 3 years attaining the rank of Sergeant before returning and graduating from Southern Colorado State College in Pueblo, Colorado with a Bachelor of Science Degree.

He was the Director of Latin American Operations for the Carboline Company providing corrosion engineering, technical service, and maintenance support for corrosion resistant coatings in nuclear plants, oil rigs, tankers, and other smaller facilities. He authored American Society for Testing Materials (ASTM) Standards on Corrosion Protection. He had to scuba dive to check out the condition of protective coatings on oil rig legs. One of his many funny stories was that a rig was having problems with the coating staying in place and while diving to investigate the issue he found sharks were rubbing their bodies against the rig legs and decided to see if rubbing against him felt as good!

We are mostly a family of engineers and physicists who know energy can't be destroyed, so Steve's energy force is still spinning around us without his physical body limiting him anymore. We are sharing Steve stories and encourage you to do the same, so he knows we are thinking of him.

Steve loved to travel, had visited all 50 United States and 46 countries, and liked to be able to speak a few words in the native tongue of everyone he met. He claimed to be fluent in Spanish, French and Portuguese because he "could tell jokes in those languages". He was a private pilot and owned a Cessna 210 for many years. Fran and Steve loved to drive and claimed the honor of having traveled the length of almost every US highway. His final trip shortly before his heart failed was to Iceland and Finland for the 75th Science Fiction & Fantasy Worldcon in Helsinki.

Steve was a proud veteran of the United States Army earning a Purple Heart and Bronze Star and was an excellent marksman and swordsman. He participated on championship trap and skeet teams for Winchester Operations in East Alton, Illinois, and was proficient in fencing with sabre, epee and foil. His family did have to make sure that if they were moving around the house after he went to sleep they had to step forcefully because if they tried to sneak quietly around, he was liable to have a flashback and introduce you to his combat defense skills! He also was an unnaturally loud snorer and his Viet Nam platoon mates used to joke that the enemy shelled them every night just to shut him up!

He loved literature and art with a large collection he loved to share. He was a friend to many writers and artists, providing technical assistance and book reviews with many citations and acknowledgments in their published works. He himself was a writer published in Soldier of Fortune magazine. He absolutely loved science fiction and fantasy, attending his first science fiction convention, St Louis Archon, early in his life. From then on he was hooked, attending almost every local convention and most Worldcons (where the Hugo and Chesley awards are presented). He helped setup and run the security and medical response teams for most of the Worldcons around the world over the last forty years.

As a lifetime Master Gardener and active member of the Gardenia Garden Club in Little Rock, Steve provided technical support and labor for the Curran Hall and River Market Master Gardener Projects and manned the Master Gardening helplines.

He shared his love for classical music and Broadway musicals by supporting the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra and by treating his family to season tickets to the St. Louis Municipal Opera in Forest Park for many years. His favorite opera was Carmen, particularly enjoying the song Habanera.

He was an expert photographer and one of his son Cameron's favorite memories was Steve teaching him how to do a timed exposure to see the track of the stars for a class project. Steve was an obsessive photographer with a dark room in his house and always carried around little albums of photos that he would show anyone at a moment's notice regaling anyone who would listen with long funny tales behind the pictures.

He was a strong advocate for higher education, served for 15 years on the University of Arkansas-Little Rock Board for the Department of Speech Pathology and Audiology and was a long-time patron of Washington University-St. Louis. He served on their library board, provided financial support, and was a dedicated athletics sponsor. His dedicated support of their volleyball team assisted them to several national championships. When Steve's parents would throw fancy parties, Steve became the most popular man on the campus by hand-delivering all the party leftovers, like caviar, to the starving engineering students (which included daughters Sammi and Marcia).

Steve loved animals especially big cats and was an avid supporter of many zoos and wildlife rescue sanctuaries. As a volunteer caretaker, he worked with lions and tigers for several years at the SafariPark near Greenbriar, Arkansas, and got to bring home tiger and lion cubs for home care over the Holidays much to his own house cats' dismay. He frequently told people that tiger spit made the best hair gel and we have pictures to prove it!

Steve was a strong supporter of charitable donations and volunteerism. A donation to the charity of your choice would honor him or remembrances can be made to the Pulaski County Master Gardeners, the Little Rock Zoo or the Little Rock Council of Garden Clubs. Hugs would be in order as well.

Steve wished to be laid to rest with military honors beneath a tree in Kansas at the 1890's original limestone farmhouse he and Fran restored. A private service will be held there in May. Individuals wishing to celebrate Steve's life and swap tales are welcome to visit the family home in Little Rock, Arkansas.

He married Sheryl Freier, daughter of the late Edwin and Viola Freier, in 1982. This union was blessed with two beautiful daughters. A businessman by trade and a golfer at heart, he had a wry sense of humor that marked his life. He was preceded in death by his mother, Maxine.

2968 Steven Thomas Trinker, 65, a resident of Ridgefield for 17 years, passed away on Sunday, May 13, 2018. He was the loving husband of Deborah (Debbie) Trinker.

Steve was born in Chicago, IL on May 1, 1953, a son of William and Joan (Morgan) Trinker.

Steven earned his Bachelor of Arts degree in Chemistry from Northwestern University and his Juris Doctorate from George Washington University while working at patent law firms in the Washington, D.C. area. Steve later worked at Union Carbide, and then joined WR Grace's patent department where he ultimately became the youngest Chief Patent Counsel of a Fortune 100 company. In 2000, Steve and his family moved to Ridgefield when he accepted a position as the Chief Patent Counsel of Praxair.

In his retirement, Steven enjoyed gardening, his terriers, including his beloved Welsh Terrier, Ruby, and listening to classic and indie rock. An avid reader, Steve enjoyed a wide range of subjects, including history, biographies, science-fiction and scientific books. Steve's biggest passion was his family; he was a doting family man, devoted to his wife, daughters and in recent years, his grandsons.

He is survived by his college sweetheart and wife of 41 years, Debbie, and their daughters, Lauren Cannon and her husband, Kevin of Pittsburgh, PA, and Allison Trinker and her husband, Chad Engle of Danbury, CT.

2969 STILES, Arlene Geline, formerly of Virginia Beach, Va., died peacefully April 17, 2015, in Richmond. Born February 21, 1933 in Raleigh, N.C. to Hana Geline Shor and Julius Geline. Arlene moved to Richmond in her late teens, worked as a dental assistant and then x-ray technician at the Medical College of Virginia. She met her husband, Donald, on a blind date and they were happily married for 42 years, until his passing in 1996. After moving to Norfolk, Arlene worked side by side with Donald at his Pembroke Mall optometric practice, where she was the office manager for many years.

2995 Suffolk Police Arrest Welder In Hit-Run Deaths of Couple

An ''overwhelming response by the public'' led detectives to a 33-year-old man who was arrested in the hit-and-run deaths of a Florida couple, the Suffolk County police said today.

The man, Anthony S. Safuto of 30 Celia Street in Patchogue, was arrested at his home Saturday night and charged with leaving the scene of an accident, the police said.

Mr. Safuto, a welder, was accused of driving the car that struck and killed Lester Migdol, 69, and his wife, Sylvia, 67, of Delray, Fla., outside Temple Beth El in Patchogue Thursday evening, Detective Lieut. Joseph Napolitano said.

The couple were in Patchogue to attend the bat mitzvah of their granddaughter. Instead, a funeral was scheduled for today, and the ceremony for the girl was postponed until next week.

Lieutenant Napolitano said Mr. Safuto said he realized he had been in an accident but did not know anyone was hurt. The lieutenant said alcohol may have been a factor in the accident.

3000 Sullivan, William F. III

Rochester: Died February 11 at the age of 47, after a lengthy and courageous struggle with a brain injury. Predeceased by his grandparents William F. and Rose M. Sullivan and Arthur F. and Barbara F. Birmingham, by his aunt Nancy J. Palmer, his uncles Robert J. Sullivan and Walter A. Kiel, and by his cousins Colleen M. O'Connor and Richard Hentz. He is survived by his devoted wife Juliet D. Sullivan; his loving daughters Margaret C. (Molly) and Josephine F. R. Sullivan; his parents William F. and Barbara J. Sullivan; his sister Tara R. Sullivan; and his nephew Ossian Sullivan Griffen. He leaves behind a large circle of loving aunts, uncles, cousins, friends, and neighbors.

Born in New Jersey, Bill spent most of his life in Rochester, where he attended Wilson Magnet High School. A funny and bookish young man, he spent his adolescence biking, swimming, reading Tolkien, and playing Dungeons and Dragons. He went on to earn a B.S. in natural resources at Cornell University and an M.S. in Evaluative Clinical Sciences at Dartmouth College. At these schools he formed close and enduring friendships, which helped mold him into a man of intelligence and integrity. Bill worked in the field of epidemiology for Dartmouth and Strong Memorial Hospital, and subsequently worked as a research analyst in various departments of the City of Rochester, mostly in the Rochester Police Department.

In 2004, he married Juliet Sloger, and guided his daughters Molly and Josie into the world. He was a devoted father and beloved husband. Bill was a fierce board game player, a lover of science fiction and fantasy, and a faithful, affectionate son, brother, grandson and friend. A resident of the 19th Ward, Bill honored his community's vision of harmonious diversity and civic engagement.

In 2009, he suffered a devastating cerebral hemorrhage that diminished his speech and movement but not his courageous spirit and loving heart. He went on to survive multiple hemorrhages over the subsequent years. A gallant fighter, Bill remained cheerful, kind, and funny to the end of his life. His courage inspired everyone around him. The family wishes to thank the staff of Maxim Health Care and VNS Hospice for their compassionate care of Bill under the meticulous supervision of his mother.
