As a good friend of Bill's during our years at B-CC I was saddened to hear of his passing.  Bill and I were good buddies in high school sharing the same off-beat sense of humor and undergraduate view of things.  After high school, we kept in touch for several years as I moved, first to Southern Maryland, and then on to Florida.  I visited him in Annapolis a few times in the 70's and he came to Naples, Florida occasionally in later years.  He was always lots of fun and a good friend.  As so often happens with high school friends living in different parts of the country, the visits  grew further and further apart as the years passed.  Our last communication concerned the 50th Reunion of our class which I couldn't attend. I'm sorry I missed the opportunity to share what would have been our last time together.  May he rest in peace.  Robert Smith, Class of '64, currently living in the mountains of N. GA.

I am very sorry to hear about Bill Hurt. I don't recall that I knew him but its just sad to lose any of our fellow classmates. He sounded like a special person too. Love, Joanie

Bill and I were close friends at Leland.  Much time was spent mixing black powder to fuel our rockets.  That we had all our fingers into,adulthood is a testimony to luck rather than common sense. Summer days at his family's home on Fenwick Island near Rehobeth were a joy.   His family had one of the last big old houses on Bradley Blvd a block off ofvWiscondin before moving out near Walt Whitman during high school. For his 16th birthday, Bill received a brand new blue VW.  Donny Clark, Buzzy Lehman, David Richards and I were known to move his VW several blocks away from where he had parked it (yes, the practical jokes of teenage males leaves much to be desired).   After high school I lost contact will Bill.  We briefly talked at the reunion.  He seemed depressed (perhaps it was medical) and disappeared from the reunion within the hour. I looked for him but could not find him.  Sad.
