    I met Bill and Barbara when he was a new manager back in the eighties. Bill was pretty funny. I remember Bill, Check Dees and I taking vending training with Freddie Alemeyer on I-95 at Port Orange and having to walk from the rest area back to the exit in the pouring rain one day. We had gotten some garbage bags to keep us dry. long yellow bags and Bill talking about us being a bunch of bananas. My sincere condolences to his family in his loss.
