Dear Joyce, Ted and Karen, My heart goes out to you as you deal with the loss of my old friend, Bill. My memories of our boyhood are still vivid- we seem to agree on any important matters and looked forward to getting together almost daily. My Dad, Lou, was a 48-year employee of the Reading RR which gave them much in common. I recall Bill taking his video & sound equipment at all hours to record passenger & freight trains and his basement shop was filled with every imaginable model train accessory. My Mom, Helen, and Sisters, Nancy & Lucy, we’re also very fond of him. Judy Litwin, your neighbor, and her parents likewise admired Bill for his warm disposition and caring manner. Bill was a true & loyal friend and all of the Litwins and Twardowskis will miss him.
Love, Tom T.

Our deepest sympathy at the passing of Bill. Spent many enjoyable hours with him discussing all things Reading Railroad. He will be deeply missed. God rest his soul.

I remember Bill from a day in 1957 when I was 16 years old. He showed up at 3rd & Spring playground with two girls named Joanne and Maria. Joanne was Bill's date and Maria was looking for a guy who wasn't at the playground. I was recruited to take his place. We cruised around in Bill's hot black Oldsmobile (might have been a Chevy) and did whatever teenagers did 63 years ago. Maria and I dated for a few months before I moved away. Bill and I didn't become friends but I always remembered him as a "Fonzie" type of guy, very cool and likable. All these years later that one night remains indelibly implanted in my memory. I was a member of the Reading RR Technical Society in the late 80's. I recognized Bill on the literature but never attempted to reconnect. Sincere sympathy to his family and friends. RIP my old friend.

Good Morning!! I've been informed of Bill's passing from this life, and wish, on behalf of all us in Philadelphia Chapter, National Railway Historical Society, to extend our sympathy to the entire Krug family. Back in 1971, our organization operated several excursions originating in Reading, going to Shamokin and the like. Bill was of assistance to us in publicizing these trips in his hobby shop, support which led to complete sellout for every trip. Nearly 50 years later, I am still active as a rail historian, and will not forget the support Bill gave us in this truly enjoyable hobby. Larry Eastwood, President, Philadelphia Chapter, NRHS.
