Both Dita and I were sadden to hear of "Dollars" passing. We will always have fond memories of times spent with him. In particular I will remember good times with him at the WHAC. He was always great to be around. He will be missed.

Dear Cherie and the Stenson family, My good friend William ' dollar bill ', .The 40 years I known you were great the laughs we had in work and the outside. I would look forward to going to Howards bar every wed, I would come to work every Thusday not feeling to good.I would say to myself how does he do it, i guess he was more experience than me. When Bill and Cherie brought their house he made downstairs a party room. Linda and I love going over there for party's and dancing with the music coming out of that juke box. After he retired I still kept in touch with him enjoying that Christmas drink with him. I lost a great friend and will truly be missed. God Bless Love Mike and Linda Brunetti

Dear Cheryl and family,
We are very saddened to learn of Dollar's death. Teddy is so glad that he got to talk to him on his 80th birthday. He always enjoyed catching up with him. They both missed the Washington Hill Club and the scat games. We will keep Dollar and your family in our prayers.

With deepest sympathy,
Teddy and Sandie Valentino

Cheri so sorry to hear of "Dollar's" passing. He was always so much fun to be with!! I can remember him dancing and swinging his legs up over the chairs. I always enjoyed the parties we went to in your basement and you and Bill were such welcoming hosts. There was never a dull moment when in his presence and his dry sense of humor always put us in a good mood. My condolences to you and the family and we will keep "Dollar" in our fondest memories.
