I love his descriptor, comedically gifted, because he truly was. We always enjoyed our times with Jane and Bill in both Pennsylvania and also when they stopped by to visit us in Dunedin Florida on their way to annual beach vacations. Bill was a keen observer and quick-witted; we enjoyed sharing laughs with them! Hugs to Jane, her sons, and the McCambridge clan for this sad loss, but there will be laughter with tears in recounting Bill's life. R.I.P. William T. o'Leary
