I am just too sad right now. I've lost a friend I knew for
almost 30 years. Bill had many
passions and railroads and fantastically good modeling were just
two of them. :'(

Terribly sad news even
though Bill told us. He was a terrific modeler but more
important he was a wonderful human being. All who knew him will
miss him greatly, but many who never met him will mourn his
loss. I won’t get over it very quickly.
I didn’t really know Bill or his family, but was shocked
when he advised of his diagnosis. The suddenness of his
death will be very hard for them. I’m sorry for them and
hope the thoughts for his remembrance service make it
will miss the unique vitality and knowledge he brought
to clinics and emails, and grateful to what he shared
with us. His modelling has been an inspiration. And
our community will be less with his passing.
been a hard year.
There are getting to
be too many empty chairs at the table....
Nine weeks from diagnosis to death.....
Bill was already planning his memorial
service when he notified some of his friends
of his situation. He had hoped it could be
held while he was still alive to enjoy it,
but that was not to be. So we'll have to
celebrate Bill's life without him. A
gentleman and a gentle man, Bill leaves an
amazing legacy of accomplishment and
inspiration. A life well lived.....
