Message: Dear Linda, Melanie and Derek and all of the family, My heart aches for all of you. Billy was such a wonderful, warm and funny guy who truly loved his family and kept his priorities straight in life. I will miss that twinkle in his eye, great smile and wonderful sense of humor. I am so glad he had a chance to enjoy Greyson--his first grandchild. He loved all of you so much--and fought so hard. May your memories of him fill that hole that I know is currently in your hearts. Love you all. Lisa

Message: Linda, Melanie and Derek, I am so incredibly sorry for your loss. Bill was such a fabulous person who would wake me up from a sound sleep while I babysat...more times than should have, and brought me home thanking me for everything. Tetris and Barbies, never cleaned them up, just relied on Bill and Linda. Your family is amazing and I'm devastated for you. My thoughts and prayers are with you. ~Becca

Message: My first fall at Avon Old Farms, I ate lunch across from Bill Angel. He was a big, friendly, funny guy who made me feel in on things from the start. I was a sophomore, and Bill was a senior or a PG. The following was written some time ago from the memory of eating across from Bill at Avon. Dec. 11, 1973 Lunch. Under one of those high windows that, from where we sit, show us only sky and the tops of evergreens, sits the biggest guy at the table cracking jokes. He is Bill Angel, and once a week since I started here in September, he’s looked across the table at my head of red hair, and asked, “are you sure you aren’t Monks’ little brother?” He wants to go to Ithaca College next year and play football. Here, he’s a forward in basketball, and was an end in football. Big guy (about 6’3”) and with bangs down to his eyebrows. Today, as he sat down, he said, “I’m ravenous,” then looking up toward Rizer who had just stepped to the podium, he muttered, “I’d have to be to eat this food.” It must be harder for day students. Us boarding students kind of get used to it because we board and only get home cooking on vacation. But the day students’ get these lunches sandwiched in between a home cooked breakfast and dinner. I’d probably just hold off until dinner. Rizer adjusts the mic and asks us to bow our heads. Rizer with his high brow accent (calls the school “A-vin” (as in “cabin”) Old Farms) asks a blessing on our meal - “Heavenly father, we ask that thee bless this food to our use, and us to thy service, and make us ever mindful of the needs of others.” And with that, the kitchen doors swing open, and out clatters the carts pushed by the “waiters.” Our waiter today is a skinny freshman who just transferred in. He and his cart with serving dishes on top, and on the bottom, two pitchers each of milk and icewater. From his seat, David Hotz looks over the cart as if the kid forgot something. To the kid, Hotz says, “Didn’t they give you a pitcher squeezer?” The kid looks over the cart, and shrugs. Hotz continues, “When you go back out, get me a lefthanded pitcher squeezer.” This mythical serving utensil will send the poor kid on a wild goose chase through which he will meet staff in all corners of the kitchen. “Hey Mick – the kid wants a left handed pitcher squeezer.” “Right,” says Mick, “we got a dozen in the dishroom. Tell him to check there.” On the menu today is “hash.” No one really knows what hash is. A reasonable guess might include potato, onion and horsemeat. It takes a lot of ketchup to make it go down. But Butch Leavitt always lights up when he finds it’s for lunch. “Oh, hey,” says Mr. Leavitt. “Look at this. Good old Avon hash.” Mr. Leavitt’s tone of voice is kind of hard to read. You’re not really sure if he might actually like it. He might. Or he might be playing games with us to see if he can talk us into liking it. “Yeah, Mr. Leavitt,” says Angel. “Good old Avon hash.” He looks at me and says under his breath, “I bet Bridgette would love this.” Bridgette is Mr. Leavitt’s bird dog. “It’s made by Purina.” Three us reach for the ketchup.

Message: I have been out of town and heard of Bill's passing. My memories include both personal and business memories. Personally, we played basketball (he was intense) for many years at Simsbury High with "the group" at 5:30 AM. He was a major part of the environment there...loved his competitiveness. And, in business, we were clients of each other. Me for some of the furniture in my office (the chair I sit in everyday) and he for some of the insurance needs he had. I was shocked. Life is so short and Bill will be missed. My thoughts and prayers to Linda and the family...God bless....

Message: I would love to have 1 more argument with you! I would love to hear that challenge in your voice and then a phone call later find out we were both right - just not on the same page. You were my friend for 20 years and we shared many memories. I am sorry for your family but know that they loved you and will continue to forever. I will miss you my friend.
