Bill Wise was the 26-year-old co-owner of one of the East Coast's first Hobie surfboard dealerships, an experienced "water person" with a passion for surfing and scuba-diving when he broke his neck in a surfing accident in 1965.

Every day since then, Wise's wife Rosalie has had to dress him and help him into his wheelchair.
