Councilmember Mike Bonin says, “We will all miss Bill’s beaming smile and booming voice, but there has not been a single person I’ve spoken with in the past few days who is not a better, happier or more fulfilled because of how Bill touched their lives. I hope you can join us to celebrate Bill and all of the ways he made our world a better place.”
