bullet  Birth Notes:

One source shows birth date as 27 Aug 1930 (Northridge source). Dene believes it was 9 Aug. Dene said Bill was born with a caul over his body. and was blue from lack of oxygen. Later, Dene told me he came up with Billy's birth record showing William Laurence, 9:40 p.m. Aug 20, 1931, 7 lbs 15 ounces.

bullet  Death Notes:

Bill's remains were cremated and scattered at sea.


bullet  Noted events in his life were:

1. Illness: gunshot wound received while hunting sending a bullet right between his eyes, After Sep 1949, Prado Dam Area, Riverside, California, U.S.A. 9 Dene reported that Bill and two friends had gone hunting at (near) that dam on the Santa Ana river where Euclid Avenue meets the 91 freeway (Is that called Santa Fe Dam?), against his parents wishes because it was a Sunday, and in some horseplay on the river bank Billy's 22 rifle fell to the ground and discharged. Sending a bullet right between his eyes. Blowing out part of his brain. It's hard to believe, but after about two weeks in that private hospital in Corona he was walking around and talking. But they had to send him to LA County General because there were no funds for a private hospital. He almost succumbed from the lack of care at County General and only lived because the folks brought him home and nursed him for weeks in a bed in the living room. The accident was in the winter of '49. Another account said it was a companion's gun that discharged.
