I heard about Bill's passing from a mutual friend. My deepest sympathy to the family. I worked at ITT with Bill. While I have not seen nor talked to Bill since those days I still have many fond memories of those days. May his soul rest in peace.

To the family, my wife and I are so sorry to hear of Willie's passing. To his son, William Jr, thank you so much for getting on Willie's e-mail and sending out notices. I'm sure the information was received by many who would not have known until much later. Am planning to come to Winchester for the service.

Godspeed Willie, you have left many friends. We will miss you at our annual Forge shop reunion in September, where you were a regular attendee.
