BBNC - Personal Note Richard E. Hayden 1/26/2022  
Remembrance of roommate Bill Cryer '68 on MLK Day

Today I was motivated to write down some memories of Bill Cryer and what his life meant to me. Happy to share it with you. I know that many of you were also positively affected by Bill's life. Please share your memories and thoughts (and I would treasure any photos that anyone might have!)

Best to all-I hope that you are doing well. Dick

I think that today is appropriate to pay tribute to a special person who changed my outlook on life, as well as that of many others.

Bill Cryer and I were assigned as roommates upon entering Norwich University in the fall of 1964. We both aspired to be engineers. Bill was the first in his family to attend college, and he was determined to live up to the opportunity that had never been available to his ancestors or parents. The beauty of a Norwich education is that EVERYONE starts the journey from the same spot. Bill's determination and his family's commitment rubbed off on me and we both nailed our academics in our freshman and sophomore years, while passing on the readily-available social opportunities and most extracurricular activities (and I had learned to concentrate while he practiced his trumpet across our shared desk). We enjoyed conquering the challenges of the Norwich life and had many good laughs about it. We both had steady girlfriends but, sadly, given the social attitudes prevailing at the time, we (he) chose not to even go to a movie theater together. Bill was warmly embraced by my folks and was a frequent guest at our home, and his wonderful parents became friends of our family.
