On behalf of the Kennedy family Please accept my condolences on the passing of Bill Spain. I have good memories of meeting him here in 1980 when he was researching his Irish ancestry. I also had the pleasure of meeting him in Mahopac in the summer of 1990. He struck me as a pure gentleman. I have no doubt but that he will be sadly missed by all of his children.

Great man and a great family. I never knew Bill served with the 34th ID in WWII. I just spent three weeks with the Red Bulls in Germany this past spring. They are now a Minnesota National Guard Division. HOOAH!!
