Sara, you were the shining light in Billy’s life. He spoke highly about his love for you and his animals. He always brought a joke and smile when meeting for coffee.

Sara, I am so sorry for your loss. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers during this time.

Sara I am so sad about Billy. Bobby enjoyed him so much—- the “lunch bunch” on Friday was a source of happiness for Bobby —-and Billy was an important friend to him. I will be indebted to Billy forever because he found Chance for us—- the dog who became Bobby’s companion. When I think of Billy, I just smile—- as I see his smile in my mind’s eye.

To Sarah and Family: I wish to extend my deepest sympathy for the loss of your husband, children's parent and grandchildren's loss of a grandparent. Billy was loved by the entire South Pointe Breeze Community. Passing by your home while walking Princess will never be the same. Billy loved dogs and always took time out of his busy day to love on them. He could be washing his car and would turn off the hose to pet the dogs. He always had time to talk. It will take a long time to get over the shock of hearing of his passing. As a community, we are here for you. Don't hesitate to call on us! Sincerely and in Sympathy, Dolly Booker and Princess

When I think of Bill, I remember his daily jokes, his kindness, his love of family, and animals. I loved hearing his stories of his youth. He was such a bright light in this world. He will be greatly missed by many. Sara, I truly enjoyed our many birthday dinners we all shared. Praying for you all at this difficult time.

By Mary and Gene Jubic - February 13, 2024

We have known you for most all of our lives. We always loved talking to you and especially our annual birthday calls. You have a special place in our hearts which can’t be replaced. You’ve been a wonderful friend and your immortality will be in our thoughts and memories. Good bye Billy

Although we have never met, Saralee, my heart goes out to you and your entire family. Billy was "A One of a Kind" friend to all those (as they say who were lucky enough to know him). And my family and I were one of the lucky ones. He used to come over our house and my Dad and Mother were always delighted to see him as if he were one of the family. He came with a smile and a willingness to help out wherever he could. We ALL loved Billy! I cannot tell you how shocked and saddened I am to hear of his passing. He will forever be like our long lost brother! His friendship was a treasure and his kindness and thoughtfulness will be in our hearts forever. Our deepest sympathy to all of you for your tremendous loss. Joyce (Arnoff), Judy(Wolff) and Nancy(Hittman) The Ziskind Family

Sara and family, My thoughts and prayers are with you. Bill was a formidable man and had much regard for him. So very sorry for your loss.

By Steve Fineman - February 12, 2024

I am devastated that Bill is gone. Bill was such an advantage with his knowledge of the Pennsylvania Constable system, and he will be missed. Bill was my friend for years and he was one of the most laid-back, congenial persons I was privileged to call my friend.

By James Miller, ACCA - February 12, 2024

When we think of Pittsburgh, we think of Billy...( Our Mayor of Pittsburgh). He was always our first contact when going back home to visit. We have known Billy for over 70 years as a friend, school mate, golfing buddy, confidant, army pal, etc. We will miss him but remember him always, with his good looks, smile, and great golf swing. Sending love to all his family. Every year for the past 40 years we called each other on our birthdays. And I value our many years of friendship.
