HBO Character DescriptionEdit
Bill may have left his job on the Imperial Beach police force, but the job never left him. Grief over losing his beloved wife Lois has fed into Bill's isolation. Whiling away his retirement in a house bursting with parrots and cockatoos, he's excruciatingly aware of the department - and its inside information - hanging at the end of a phone line. A good friend of the Yost family, he tries to patch the hole Butchie left in Shaun's life.
