Fran, I am so very sorry to hear of Bill's passing. I just found out today from Dave Zilch.Sending prayers your way! Linda Seablom
If I could change a few variables, I would be there at the services today to represent the Pribnow family. I am the youngest of the kids (at 55) and grew up knowing Bill, though I never knew him as my brothers did. I consider Bill a family friend and sure there are many stories we have to tell of him. He made a point to be at our parents' funerals and attended my wedding. I am sorry we are not there today. Loving thoughts from the Pribnows.
Growing up it was always a delight to get a visit from cousin Bill and to the day he died that never changed. He always had a line that would make you laugh. A man with that kind of wit will be missed. There is no doubt that there is a whole lot of laughter going on in heaven!
What a great guy!!! He will surely be missed by all of us in the Delta family, and certainly all of us who had the pleasure of getting to know him in the "d" pilot class of 1964.
All I can say is Lord be ready for the wild man.
My condolences to Bill's family. It was always fun to fly with Bill and learn of his latest endeavors. The authentic Teepee out west always provided for great stories. I certainly enjoyed flying with Bill over the years and he will be missed. A true ORD legend.

Fran, Our sincere condolences to you and all of Bills family. I first met Bill when we were 2nd Lts. In the Marine Corps, at Cherry Point. Then to my surprise, when I was hired by Delta, Bill was at the Chicago base, but hired a few years ahead of me. We lived fairly close to each other he in Wayne and Loretta and I in Bartlett, so we got together often. He got to know Loretta and I quite well, and our dog Taco just loved it when he would drop by. We also flew several time together on the DC-9 Him as the Captain and me as his Co-pilot. I even have a couple Duck Decoys that were carved and painted by is Sister Jan Freeland. Unfortunately we lost touch many years ago, and I consider that my loss, he was a good man.
My condolences to Bill's family. I flew with Bill years ago out of Chicago on the DC-9 and enjoyed his company and his wonderful airmanship. A good man indeed. RIP
Flew many DC-9 trips with Bill out of Chicago. Enjoyed his stories of Alaska. Rest in peace.
A notable name from the infamous ORD base. Rest in peace, Bill.
A friend from our days in New Orleans.
