To Bill’s family and friends: I was saddened to hear about Bill’s passing. In many ways it’s so hard to believe. Bill had that “greater than life” personality. You knew when he walked into a room. His sense of humor and gregarious personality was very special. As a high school classmate, I will always remember him. May the fond memories that you have be a source of comfort.

Billy lived across the street from my family in Christopher Shores during approximate 6th-8th grades. He was always full of life and brought smiles and lots of happy days. Emailed occasionally with Billy over the years, sharing jokes or opinions. Emails stopped a while back....now I sadly know why there will be no more.....will miss our NNHS long time friend.

I extend my sincere condolences to the family of Bill Roady. I think everyone who knew Bill really liked him. He was kind and nice to everyone. I am glad we reconnected a few years ago. We live near each other and I road with him to a couple of breakfasts in Williamsburg to be with other Typhoons. He had a positive approach to so much. May God bless the family. N.N.H.S '60
