Thanks for the memories Bill.

Those of us who knew him had quite a few even if we were tangential to his life and work. Sadly, it seems there is little or no room for such talented characters in today’s newsroom.

As a recent immigrant to the United States, I worked with Bill in 1969 and 1970 while covering federal court for the Plain Dealer. He used to tease me about my accent and British journalism but he made me feel at home in the newsroom and I never forgot him. We need more characters like Bill to liven up newsrooms.

Great post, Bill. The Eszterhas story is classic!

William F. was a gem of a journalist and a great friend. Thanks for the tribute to him.

Bill was a good friend and neighbor. We shared a lot of laughs over a glass or two of good German beer. He was very proud of his family and a terrific father and husband.
