Some favorite memories of Bill were celebrating Stonewall’s 50th Anniversary at the Seattle Pride parade. It was such a happy, fun, and joyous day of celebration. We marched with the Children’s Hospital contingent, laughing and smiling. I felt so honored to be with him and his family.
Bill and I also attended the Seattle Repertory Jazz Orchestra: Tribute to Billie Holiday Concert and then headed up to Pike Place Market to celebrate Lisette’s 50th Birthday Bash. I also enjoyed talking to him about social issues, politics, family, and community. He was a warm, humble, loving, kind, and very dignified man. I am so grateful for his legacy and all the communities he was part of. He will be greatly missed.
