Bill was best known for his two most iconic roles – Maj. Roger Healey of “I Dream of Jeannie,” the girl crazy best-friend to Major Nelson; and the perpetually jet-lagged, Howard Borden of “The Bob Newhart Show.“Bill’s philosophy in life was that happiness was a decision you make. That was how he lived. Bill enjoyed every bit of his life to the fullest. There will not be a memorial service or funeral for family, friends, and fans. Instead, Bill’s final wish is to throw a party. Remember the good times and be happy.
— feeling sad.
