He was my mentor and my brother. I will miss his charm, wit, warmth & story telling. I have so many memories of Bill. May family & friends comfort and strengthen you in the days ahead.

Bill was my brother-in-law for 32 years, and he spent a few days, three times a year, with me and my husband in our home when my sister came to visit. Plus, I would travel to visit them and stay at their home for many days. Over the years, we got to know each other well. Here are some words/things that fondly remind me of him. Marine, world traveler, Princess Cruises, Alaskan fishing, avid golfer, great storyteller, “Bill Wright parking spot,” speaking Italian, workouts at the gym. Luzianne coffee, calamari, Outback Steakhouse, blooming onion, hot sauce on everything, Fish Market, Old Bay seasoning, bananas & bagels, Handel’s ice cream, specialty beers, wine, & shelled peanuts. Polo shirts, upgrades, owning the latest gadget, Renee’s for music and dancing, book reader, George Jones’ songs, souvenir gifts from his travels, calling me “Hucul,” eager early morning coffee conversations, “in the vault,” “fits in,” “lousy cook.” Celebrities he met that I can remember: Rock Hudson, Chi-Chi Rodriguez, Gary Coleman. Positive attitude, full of energy, optimistic, generous, hardy laugh, two thumbs up, waiting for the next adventure! Semper Fi (always faithful). Irene Matlak Hucul
