We are deeply saddened to hear of the death and Will Rafter. He was our friend and Schwinn and Nautilus sales rep for many years. We appreciated him very much and have many good memories of times we shared. We are so sorry for your loss. Sending our sympathies, Alan & Mabel Martin and Dale & Linda Martin and all of us at Martins Bike Shop.

We are so sorry to hear this news it is never easy losing a loved one especially one as kind and generous with his time. We both have such fond memories of working along side Will and so many times his humor got us through all kinds of crazy situations in those days we treasure - The early Schwinn days! One thing is for certain he loved his family and there will not be a day go by that you do not recall the lasting memories made with such a wonderful man. Tracey Harvey & Adam Hubbard - Seattle, WA

Dan, Kate and the extended Rafter Family-
I worked with Will in the Schwinn Day's. Will took me under his wing when I worked along - side him at Schwinn. He quickly became one of my most valuable resources, a mentor and one I considered a great friend. We spoke almost daily at that time in our lives. Will had an ability to bring a sense of calm to the conversation. I had a respect for him reserved for only the best.
Often, I've reflected on the many ways Will was a great influence for me and I'm privaledged to have known him. My sincerest condolences
