Very Sad news that NSU's Promo and Pricing Guru passed away in the night. Such a lovely man and a great friend of NSU and the Philly show. I am sure NSU and Harris will post more.

Thoughts are with his family. RIP Bill it was lovely to know you Angel

I'm not sure what to say, I just saw the postings on Facebook. Bill was a good friend, I think of him often, and really, really will miss him.

RIP Mr. DeFranzo.........

This is terrible news. Bill worked for NSU for so many years and was such a great friend to our family personally. He had a lot of friends in the card collecting community and will be severely missed.

Rest in piece, Bill.

Writing this with tears.

Bill was a true gentleman and lovely to know. Although we only met in May, we spoke to each other and traded cards or almost a decade. There are people in this world who are just........ so nice. Bill was that guy.

Will really miss him but glad I got the chance to know him.

My condolences to his family and to the NSU family.

Frown Oh No !!!! Mr. Bill. I met him a few years ago at Hampton Beach in N.H. and he was a gracious gentleman. Brought me a long box of promos and just wanted the friendship I gave. I feel I lost a brother in the NSU family. Shake Head I asked if he wanted to adopt me,I told him "I'm potty trained" and he almost busted a gut laughing. He told me that he liked it. And only 15 miles from where I live, but long bus ride for me. Shake Head
