Condolence: Billy, You meant so much to me and my family. We arrived at AM at the same time, and my two years there were so much more rewarding because of your presence. Just the other day, I was telling the story about how someone decided to come looking for a fight with me, and you said very simply, "if they want you, they have to come through me." Their car was peeling back up Germonds Road about ten minutes later, and we just jogged up to practice with the team. You had a special ability to get through to kids from all walks of life even those who were under the impression that they knew everything. I'll remember you screaming on the sidelines and laughing at my wedding.
Amy and High Rise, you taught me so much about family without ever knowing it. Thank you. Billy will be missed dearly. I am very sorry that I cannot be there to say goodbye. Eileen and I will keep you, Billy Jr, Caroline, Jaime and the entire Dickinson family in our prayers.
Sincerely, Ed Carr
Condolence: I just learned of Billy’s passing on the Mater Dei Alumni website. Billy was one of my favorite 8th grade students at Saint Agnes. My prayers are with the Dickinsons (one of my favorite Saint Agnes families) during this time.
Condolence: The Albertus Magnus Athletic Department would like to pass our sincere condolences to the entire Dickinson family. Billy was an integral part of Albertus Magnus in his roles as AD, teacher, coach, mentor, and friend. We thank Billy for all of his contributions to our school and our athletes. May he Rest in Peace.

Condolence: Dear Amy and Family, We were so sad to learn of Billy's passing. There are so many wonderful memories of the time we spent with him. His passion for sharing himself with others through coaching and friendship will always be fondly remembered. Being with Billy on the field at AM was the best of times. God bless you and your family.
Condolence: The sadness I fell can not be put into words Billy was kind, funny and a special person with a heart of gold. His love for his students, and family was his whole life. I am so sorry for his family and all those who knew him, they are the only ones that knew what a great man he truly was and how many hearts he touched and how many people he helped. HE WILL BE MISSED BY SO MANY PEOPLE.
Condolence: Dear Dickinson family, I am so, so sad to hear of Billy's passing. He is a wonderful memory of growing up with Geri and he was the best traveling Powderpuff football coach ever! He always had a smile and a kind word. My thoughts and prayers will be with your family as you go through this sad time. Love to you all. ❤️
