Although Bill has received well deserved honors for his many scientific accomplishments, he will be remembered by many of us simply as "Friend and Colleague". We will miss him. My deepest sympathies to Nancy and family

Returning from out of town Sunday I was shocked and saddened to hear of Bill's passing. From our first meeting 56 years ago when he interviewed me for a job at Monsanto to our last dinners at the Willows, Bill was a valued and trusted friend and colleague. His chemical insights, questioning nature, gentlemanly demeanor and natural interest in learning and understanding were truly unique. It was especially rewarding to see him recognized for his unique chemical accomplishments and remain personally unchanged by the high honors. I will miss seeing him "tooling" aroung in his wheelchair and broad rimmed hat exploring and observing all that he still could. He was "one of a kind"!
