Uncle Bill I was thinking about you and my pops, extra earlier today. It still gets me to this day that the same gentleman who was my mother's rock when my pops died. Passes away 9 months after my own pops. Uncle Bill you always knew how to entertain the family and make others laugh. You always knew how to put on a show. I'll never forget you or my pops, as long as I live. If you see Pops, tell him I said Hi and the family misses you both along with Grandma, and Grandpa, Words cannot explain how much I'd love to have all of you's back. Jared

Bill again I cried for you. I still can't believe you're gone. A song played on the radio and everytime I hear it, It reminds me of you. I was ready to go out yesterday with my son and I turned on the car and the same song played and I just busted out crying. In front of my son. Your loss is a hard pill to swallow and you will be missed forever. Thank you for always being there for the family and making this life worth living. We all love you. RIP.

Hearing about your loss has deeply saddened us. We know that this is far from what you are going through right now. We will always remember Bill's wittiness, kindness and loving ways. Our fond memories we shared in Bergenfield will never be forgotten. May the wonderful memories of Bill comfort you all at this time of sadness. Love John Diana and Tara

I am very sad to hear of Bill's passing. Bill was such a warm, friendly, and upbeat guy with a tremendous sense of humor. He was creative, talented, and at times, a bit mischievous in a good-natured way. Some of my fondest and happiest memories from school days were with Bill. Thank you Bill. And God bless you. My deepest sympathies, thoughts and prayers are with Iris and their family. - Peter Fritz

Iris, Jim and I are so sorry. There's no doubt how much Bill loved you all. We are keeping you in our thoughts and send love and prayers to you, Katie, and Bryan and Theresa. Kim Pfennigwerth

Words come sparingly to me at the moment. What do I say about my Godfather, of a man who so shaped my idea of how a man should conduct himself, in this day and always? One thing I know... he'd probably not want me to dwell on it too much. I can almost hear his voice right now... saying "Jay Man, you've got to see what's up here." Because my Uncle Bill was larger than life itself, and he loved nothing more than to show off when he found something awesome. I'll bet he's up there quizzing Mickey Mantle, and Gil Hodges, and Gary Carter, and all of his other sports faves on what it was like to be them...and expect to see him on the other side, with a big old arm around my shoulder, just telling me about all the stuff I didn't know about baseball that he'd just found out. Oh, and Marlon Brando too, because that was William Moschel to me... inquisitive, temperamental, but chock full of wisdom and common sense logic for those with the wherewithal to hear. And I hung on every word when I could... probably because it often came in a Popeye voice. I love you, man... and when I get to that other side, I expect you to show off all the stuff you've figured out about the heavens.

My condolences to Ms. Iris, Brian, and Katie. I have known my adopted brother, Bill for over twenty years. Bill and I met at AT&T. I was the group secretary . Due to brother Bill's personality and caring spirit we became great friends. Our cubicles we're located in the same isle. We visited each othe a lot and his cubicle became my sanctuary on many occasions when I needed a friend. Brother Bill was that friend, always had words of wisdom to impart. I became very ill in 1998 and ended up on disability for six months. Bill was always inquiring about my health. On my return to work Brother Bill came to my cubicle every day to make certain I took my meds. Just like a big brother looking out for little sister. You always made my day a little brighter. I was very blessed to speak with brother Bill on Monday for almost two hours. We reminisced about former employees, We chuckled and laughed, he asked about my marriage etc. we promised we would chat more often, and promised to get together when Ms. iris was available. That last conversation would be forever etched in my mind. So happy I met you, and you accepted me for who I am. I miss you brother Bill, however I know where you are with your (our) Jesus. You ahad always stated that you were making yourself ready for that call whenever it came. This is not good bye, this is until we meet again.
