    I too am shocked to hear the news on Bill. I recently exchanged a few e-mails with Bill, and we were planning to get together in Dayton to finally meet in person.

    Bill was a fine man, a gentleman and first class ham.

    It is never time

    I just added Bill to my list of people to contact, complete with map route and everything, for my 16 March visit to Denver. I was sure looking forward to meeting him. No doubt he will be missed for his helping us recover from our oopses. He touched a lot of lives. 73 OM

    Dear Ham Community,

    I want to express my deepest gratitude to all the hams & friends. The awesome support of condolences, kindness, spiritual & financial. The Ham community is truly a family of brothers & sisters who care. You are all wonderful.

    I am sorry I haven’t sent anything sooner.

    I finally got the Death Certificate. The cause was consistent with acute heart failure. The final manner of death is undetermined. OSHA is still investigating and I hope to know more in August, 2009 God willing.

    Bill repaired a board from my Kenwood TS-850 last November (2008), which he did a fantastic and professional job. Judging from his prices I feel he repaired ham gear for others to help them rather than for extortionate financial gain (It was cheaper to send the board stateside and have Bill repair it than to have the work carried out here in England!!) He was a true ham, an elmer to many. I would have had no hesitation in recommending his work to anyone else. It's a shame I will never get to do that again. This is a tragic loss to the hobby.

    I first had contact with Bill about 2 years ago. What a guy!!!!!!!!!! He not only rebuilt my 940 but continued a lengthy email correspondence with me about life and all the benefits life had to offer. He gave great recommendations to my sister when she had her gall bladder removed, as he had suffered from mistakes he had made post surgery. He will be truly missed by all. I am really late with this entry, but Bill deserves it!
