Had the pleasure of working with Bill twice in my career—once, when he first came to work at ITT Continental Baking (Wonder/Hostess) in Wheeling, and then 14 years later when he was instrumental in hiring me at Nickles Bakery. So long for now, Bill—-I’m sure that right now you are working at getting more shelf space up there! To the family: Had we not retired and moved to North Carolina, I would have been honored to attend the services.
