Bill Stoebuck has had a profound influence on my law school experience and my legal career. In my third year of law school in 1990-1991, he was my professor for my analytic writing paper that we worked on all year. He always told me I was a good writer, but I attribute much of that to him! We remained good friends after law school, having lunch a few times a year and I knew I could always call him with real property issues. I always enjoyed discussing issues with him and he always had the answers! He will be missed. Kristin Olson

I'm very sorry to hear this news. All my best wishes to Professor Stoebuck's family. As a former student, I particularly admired Professor Stoebuck's commitment to the law, his students, and the UW.

Professor Stoebuck was the most influential teacher I had at UW. In 1969 we first year students were divided into small sections, and I was in his Real Property group. His emphasis on careful reading and analysis gave me a foundation that made all my subsequent class preparation seem easy. I am still practicing today, in a field that requires that same kind of close analysis, and I think of him often. John B. Magee (Washington, DC)

Dear Stoebuck Family:

Please know that Bill was a blessing and inspiration to me as a law student. Of course we was a great scholar and professor, but he was even more -- a good man. I will always appreciate the contribution he made to law school diversity by being a conservative and Lutheran. I live with the hope that we will see him again. Thanks be to God for this good man.

I remember Professor Stoebuck well. I never missed a class in real property. I was afraid to because he had a reputation for being tough on grading. He also was very kind and generous to students. On the day of the exam he was always in the classroom to offer any last minute help. I even remember him allowing one student to take the entire final exam over because she had a rough time that year in her personal life. He was a great lecturer and a sharp dresser. He always reminded me of Clark Gable in his appearance. The best advice he gave us was a great lawyer never has all the answers but asks all the right questions. I want to offer my sincere condolences to his family.
