I must regretfully inform you all that Billy Grossmann, an established architect, a former leader of the horn section of the band, a 101-lbs Kanto Plain wrestling Champion, an Honor student, the member of the class of 1975, and a man with great smile, passed away on September 22, 2015, in Sydney, Australia, after a long illness. No words can express the loss, but we will forever remember him as a great human being of many talents.
The funeral will be held on September 30 in Sydney. He is survived by his mother.
