  22. I remember Bill as a classmate from the old public school, SS14, 1953-1957, east of Warwick Village. Bill was a good guy. I remember when he was struck ill by polio. When he was ill at school, I gave him a ride on my old bicycle from the school to his home in the Village. The last time I spoke with him was a chance meeting at my dad’s farm. He, my dad and I conversed for many minutes.

    My sympathies to the Clark family.
