Bill built our house 16 years ago. At that time, we had no idea what a positive influence he would have on our lives. That first day we met to negotiate the cost of our new construction. “There would be no negotiation”, I remembered him saying. “I am an honest Jewish guy. You either trust me or you don’t.” If it were someone else, we would have walked away. But there was something about Bill’s straight-shooting style combined with his patience with our questions and solid explanations, that made us comfortable that we had found the right guy.  

As time went on, we realized that Bill was one of the most honest and caring people we had ever met. There was never any doubt that he was looking out for us. We always appreciated his blunt honesty. As we spent more time with Bill, we learned that he rubbed off on everyone who worked with him. We really felt that the Crowell & Baker team was more like a family. Every single person that Bill ever introduced us to has been so nice and so honest. That was obviously never coincidental. It was because of Bill.

He was particularly soft and forgiving with Tracy. When she wanted a different paint color in every room on the top floor, he had a fit. “That’s not in the contract!” he fumed. But, one look from Tracy’s pouting face was all it took. She adored him and especially loved his visits and looked to him as a father-figure.

Over the past 16 years, we have always enjoyed having Bill just stop by just to say hi, hang for a while and share his stories. I think he and Tracy have traded 1000’s of jokes over the years. If she had a bad day, a joke from Bill was all it would take to make her smile. Bill’s visits, his jokes, his smile and his stories are going to be greatly missed. But any time that we have the opportunity to help someone or lift someone’s spirits or when we have to decide on “what is the right thing to do”, …. we will always think about Bill and say, “What would Bill do?”
