Dr. William D. Litzinger

Monday, April 08, 2013
I first met Bill when he hired me at the University of Rhode Island in 1969 and then left before I got there. Then in 1973 he hired me at UTSA where we worked together until he retired. Always a friend and always supportive whether we agreed on not. He will be missed but the Litz stories will go on forever.

Dear Family,

I first met Bill in the Chicago airport in the spring of 1975. I was finishing my doctoral work at Michigan State and this new university was being established in San Antonio. At one point in the job interview, Bill excused himself, went to the phone and made a call. I could hear him say that ‘this one sounds like a keeper.” That began a 10 year relationship with Bill. I came to UTSA and Bill was an important mentor in my life. I published my first paper with Bill. Both Elaine and I remember many gatherings at Bill's and Janet's house in Hollywood Park over the subsequent years. After ten years, I left UTSA to be dean of business at the University of Dayton. Bill and Janet visited once and I was able to share my new university with them. Bill was very important in my life, as he was in so many others. All of you who loved him so deeply can be at peace knowing that Bill touched so many, so deeply, and set a mark that we all should strive to achieve.
