July 2, 1949 - September 17, 2019 Los Altos On September 17, 2019 William moved from this realm into the pure land of Infinite light. He died from prostate cancer. He was many things; a horse whisperer, a monk, thoughtful caregiver, a surfer, a lover of plants who shared his compost tea with all his neighbors, a story teller, a traveler, a shaman, a collector of buddhas, but in the end he was only humble and full of love. Bill is survived by his wife Carol, sons Yamal and Arjuna (Christine), daughter Jahnava, his pop Bill Sr., brothers Michael (Debbie), Dennis (Donna) and four awesome grandkids. Private services have been held.
