"Bill has been an integral part of building WGVU Real Oldies," WGVU GM MICHAEL WALENTA said. "We will miss his smile, his style, and the contribution he has made to our station and our lives. His passion for music, golf, and the community are an inspiration. Please keep BILL’s family in your thoughts."
