A great man and great pilot! He shared his valuable wisdom and knowledge with many of us fellow aviators learning new planes and seats. We will miss him dearly.

Bill's name is in my logbook many times. We flew a few of those military charters to the middle east together. Always a professional. RIP friend.

I will never forget Bill's sweet smile! I enjoyed every minute shared with him. He was fun to be with and to laugh with. He was a true great friend. I will miss him dearly. But I will see him again in GLORY LAND with Jesus!

To Bill's family,

I too enjoyed very much flying with Bill as his first officer on the DC-10. He was an excellent, intuitive pilot. We shared being Vietnam vets, a common bond that few who hadn't been there understand.

I flew with Bill at Continental during the turbulent times of the first bankruptcy, and he navigated through it with an admirably calm and circumspect demeanor. He managed his crew, both cockpit and cabin, with sensitivity and a sense of professional purpose that was totally admirable. I tried to incorporate his able leadership style into my own when I eventually upgraded to captain on the '10.

I know his loss leaves a gaping hole in the many hearts of those who loved and respected him for the hero that he was.

To those gone West....

Dear Family and Friends,

Bill and I flew together at Continental Airlines during the best of times and the worst of times and I appreciated his friendship throughout. As a fellow Vietnam veteran I salute Bill and signal "thanks for being where it mattered when it counted... and welcome home."

Anna,
I am terribly sorry to hear of this. Bill and I were in the October 1968 class at Continental together. We have had a number of fine times together over the decades. He was a gentleman. My best to you.
