While at Scotland Bill was the Cadets Senior Officer. He was a fullback on the football team, he was also on the baseball and wrestling teams. He served 20+ years in the US Army.
Bill made certain we knew about illnesses and deaths of our brothers and sisters in Altoona. He’d even send obituaries. He was a special man and will be missed by all who knew him.
Thank you for keeping Alana in your thoughts and prayers during this very difficult time.
Thank you Linda Cowan Plummer ’67, Rick & Tudy Gates ’69 Sally Sheaffer ’65 & Mike Portner ’67 for providing the information regarding Bill.
Scotland Family Forever!
