  1. If Bill saw this he would say "holla". He's already missed.

  2. The Model A Ford truck of course belonged to Bill's father Paul Custack who loved take the neighborhood kids for rides. Unfortunately the truck was destroyed in a fire after Paul had sold it in the 1980's.

  3. I lived on Humboldt Street between Dayton and Haskell Park from my birth in 1952, Civic Park Elementary School, Longfellow Jr. High, Old Northern for 2 years, first class to graduate from the "new Northern" in 1972. Worked at Comber's grocery store which was right across the street from my house. I swam, bowled, played bball, made out with girls all at Haskell park. i don't remember the truck but the sign and the park brought back great memories.

  4. I grew up only a few blocks from Bill and Dan, spent many days playing football/baseball @ Haskell Park with the two of them along with the Dave, Jim, Eric, Damon, Armondo, Frank, Dave and Mike. Very sad day.

  5. One good memory of Bill is walking with him from his house on Greenway, through those woods in the truck photo, and across the park to a party at the Makenzie's house in the summer of 1984.
