My elementary school(s):

St Paul's Catholic School Richardson, Tx

Favorite RHS teacher(s):

Ms Mcclenny

Favorite RHS memory or story:

I can remember Friday nights after a game...if we didn't have dates...which many times we/I didn't (lol) we would cruise up and down Forest Lane and if we were hungry afterward

High school regrets:

Not buckling down and making better grades. Other than that.....I wouldn't trade a thing~

If you were back in high school, what would you do differently?

Study

What one piece of advice would you give today's graduates?

Many of our great leaders.....and success stories are individuals who took "risks" albeit calculated ones...but still did not shy away from their dreams.
On your way...chasing that dream....treat others fairly and kindly.
Chivalry and kindness go a LONG way.
Don' be afraid to stand up for what you believe is right...but be humble enough to admit when you are wrong.

What is your view of the future now versus your view in 1969?

There is really not enough room here to elaborate on this....other than the future is changing everyday. WE can make a difference every day.
I could take a negative stance here (with the state of affairs politically) but I have to believe we can still make a difference.

Very considerate and thoughtful comments by all of you above!

All true! 

Billy was as kind of a human being as I've ever met. We hung out together along with Benny many a Friday night......as we cruised up and down Forest after an RHS game! Billy was what I would say a "core" member of our "Gang" of guys (before gangs were the bad kind!)

Billy, Benny, Jon Rommel, Jim Mulvihill, Lance Cantor, Ron Baldock,Steve Fritz, Rpbert Hutchins, (from another school who knew both) and myself were all considered "lifelong members".......LOL! 

If it wasn't Forest, it was the railroad trestle......or, going down the swollen White Rock Creek....after a huge rainstorm!

One thing I remember the most about Billy was his smile! No matter the work (and i know he worked hard at Northpark) No matter the situation Billy always had a radiant, engaging smile! 

And his love of God and family manifested itself often! And he loved his friends like us as well.

Billy you were and are loved. My only regret was not getting to spend more time with you at the 50th when you wheeled yourself up with that smile!

My thoughts and prayers are with the Hines family as they move through this loss~j
