It didn't take long for teachers to project a career path for young Bill Walsh. Sister Mary Edward at St. Francis Grammar School in Metuchen, New Jersey, was the fi rst to conclude, "William, you'll make a wonderful priest." It was a refrain Bill heard throughout his Catholic upbringing and one that he considered even through his college years. But that changed when he met Barbara.
In Where Should We Have Stopped? author Fred Behringer tells the story of this remarkable family-Bill and Barbara Walsh and their fi fteen children. This biography follows the path of Bill's life and of his family, as he became a successful businessman, a philanthropist, a dedicated volunteer, and champion golfer. It details how Barbara became a leading fashion model in Philadelphia, how the Swimmin' Walsh Women set records and won scholarships, and how the children excelled as executives, artists, teachers, and golfers.
The stories in Where Should We Have Stopped? portray Bill as a solid family man with strong values, a solid work ethic, and a deep love for his wife, children, friends, associates, country, and God. Members of the Walsh family have their share of disagreements, yet their respect and love for one another endures to an unusual degree.
