I had the pleasure of working with Bill during my two tenures at the middle school. He was always cooperative and easy to get along with. I could tell he liked children.I fondly remember him buying necessary materials with his own money so that he could meet the needs of his students.

Mr. Bill was a great man. He did a lot for me when we worked together at liquor land. He always called me "Dinky". lol. He will be greatly missed. R.I.P. Mr. Bill.

Mr. Collier was a great math teacher at Havre de Grace Middle School. I will forever remember his kind way of teaching, making the student feel at ease, and his love for moon pies. My deepest sympathy to the family.

Dear Barbara and Rachel,
My sympathy to both of you. Bill was one of my first friends when I started teaching at HdG Middle. I was a mess, but he was supportive and I needed that! We remained friends for my thirty years at that school. We shared many laughs. May he rest in peace.
