He treasured memories of golf at Rancho Park and friends from Hamilton High. To fulfill his duty to country, he joined the Army Reserves and was honorably discharged at the rank of Sargent after 6 years of summer camps. After graduating from UCLA Bill went to work selling fabrics in the L.A. area. He married Miriam “Midge” Heymann in 1965 and they had 2 boys. Bill learned that North Carolina was the place to sell fabric - he made a sales trip to High Point and called Midge saying "It's beautiful here, pack up, we're moving, so in 1969 they moved to Greensboro NC. where they made many friends, who became family to them, sharing holidays, and joy and sorrows of life. Bill was an independent contractor who sold for Dorell, David and Dash, JB Martin and Weave Corporation. His employers and customers were very important to him – he was respected, loyal, always honest, patient and proud of their success. Bill enjoyed his job as if he were going to a party everyday. His career started from being the “kid” on the block to "The Dean". Bill loved mentoring “Kids” to become good salesmen. As important as his career was to him, Bill’s family and friends had his full attention. Bill is survived by his loving wife Miriam “Midge” Heymann, sons Nicholas Edward Pines and wife Rhonda Teague, Harold Russell Pines and wife Kathleen Pines, and Benjamin Stuart Pines and wife Patricia Gladden Pines, brother, Michael Pines, sister Margot (Pines) Moore, and grandchildren Hannah Eve Pines, Avery Elizabeth Pines, and Kinsey Muriel Pines.
