I am so very saddened and shocked to hear of Bill's passing.  I had talked to him recently and we were making plans for golf and dinner in Florida.  My deepest condolences to Jenna, Billy and the rest of the Herhold family.  My wife Maureen and I have such fond memories of spending 4th of July week-ends along with the Grote's at Billl's Wisconsin home, effectionally known as Birchvue.  I was Bill's "best man" at his marriage to Carol in 1967 and we have been close friends for over 60 years and I'm going to miss him dearly.  Enjoy that Southern Comfort Manhattan old friend.  RIP.  Bill Vasey

We were saddened to hear of Bill's passing.  Wish we knew Bill better in high school but met years after when we discovered we used to go to Elkhorn, Wisconsin and knew the same places up there.  We started to chat and soon we were together at a mini reunion of classmates in Florida.  Time goes by so very quickly and things you plan to do never get done.  He was going to plan another mini reunion and we would have loved to be with him once again.  Will also miss all his comments and jokes on Facebook.  Our condolances to the family and Bill you will be sorely missed.  Carolyn and Dave Lodge

My heart is heavy with the news of Bill's passing. I was shocked because he was just posting on Facebook.  What a colorful guy he was.  My late husband knew Bill from when they both worked at Miller's drug store back in the 50's.  We have visited him up at his beautiful log home in Wisconsin and also at his lovely home in Estaro . So sorry he will not be here for the 2020 election. He was one of Trump's biggest fans!  He will truely be missed  I will be in the Naples area March 9 and was looking forward to having lunch with him and other classmates.   RIP, Bill  .,, have a cocktail up in heaven with my Bill 😢💔<>>

B---A "Bestie" to many people -- always ready to help

I---Interested in learning new things --  a fascinating guy  

L---Liked by all people he met -- a very good man and a super person

L---Loved life, golf, good drinks, and food -- loyal to family and friends 

H---Had an infectious laugh and a great sense of humor -- funny and fun 

E---Enthusiastic and excited about the world around him 

R---Restored boats, drove boats and enjoyed and loved the lake and water activities

H---He will be sorely missed by Jenna, Billy, Dana, Jeri,  and many friends --God bless and keep him

O---Oak Park and OPRFHS had a big place in his heart -- and he beamed with pride as a "Dooper"

We wish peace and strength and fond memories to all of his family and friends,

It goes without saying that Bill will be greatly missed. He graciously shared his life experiences which we all enjoyed hearing, As a very social person he enjoyed gathering people together for celebrations. Plus, I must add, Bill was a huge Cub fan!
