Allen “Bill” Press was a long-standing member of Club 100, the Napa Century Peggers.
-… always the “life of the party” with lips always moving!
– His humor; his willingness to help others. A mentor and volunteer.
– He had a quick wit and a quicker tongue. I will miss him immensely.
-… never met a person who didn’t like Bill.
– I always enjoyed being next to him during tournament play – a chatter box yes, but funny
– He made us laugh, he cared for all of us, but mostly he was a great cribbage player always willing to help new players and experienced players alike.
-Always ready to do what needed doing.
Always willing to coach, always anxious to improve, Bill was valued and loved by the bocce teams.
His jovial presence on the ‘green’ – even though it’s artificial green – will be missed by all in the bocce league.
Bill was also a long-time volunteer at the Napa Senior Center cribbage group that meets every Thursday afternoon to provide a safe and supportive place for Seniors who wish to learn or refresh their cribbage skills.
Bill was a great all-rounder and will be missed all around.
