    KERRVILLE — William Almas Tynan died at his home on Tierra Linda Ranch in Kerrville, Texas, on Tuesday, Aug. 7, 2018. Tynan was a resident of Tierra Linda for the past 29-plus years and very much enjoyed living in the Texas Hill Country.

    He was born on Oct. 12, 1926, in Saint Paul, Ramsey County, Minnesota, to Maurice I. Tynan and Mable J. Almas Tynan. For the first 10 years of his life, Tynan lived in Saint Paul, then moved to the Washington area when his father received a position with the U.S. government. Living in the Maryland suburbs of D.C., Tynan attended elementary, junior high and high school in Montgomery County, Maryland; spent one year at Washington College in Chestertown, Maryland; then enrolled at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, New York, graduating with degrees in electrical and management engineering in 1950. Tynan was employed by The Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory in Laurel, Maryland, in 1951, retiring in 1988. At JHU/APL, he participated in the development of several U.S. Navy missiles, including the Tomahawk Cruise Missile.

    I didn't know Bill was involved with the cruise missile program. I fielded that BGM-109 nuclear-tipped cruise missile in the 80's with the USAF.
    We're all linked in some fashion!
    RIP, Bill.
