I'm so thankful that you were part of my life. You made it that much more wonderful. You always welcomed me in as part of your family and treated my like one of your own. I'm thankful for all the wonderful memories I have with you. I will miss you. My thoughts and prayers are with Andi and my "family".

An outstanding corporate leader and an outstanding all around man. Will always be my model for what a leader should be.

One of my favorite persons. We enjoyed debating about anything -- and you really had to be sharp to compete with Bill. I enjoyed our years working together on Washington Technology and with the Purples in ARCS. Carole and I will send a donation to ARCS in Bill's honor.

A wonderful person and a great leader who cared about "all" the people in his extensive organization. Jeanie and I send condolances to Andi and all the family.

In 1979 I was sent to Arlington VA to be interviewed by Frank Geldert and Bill Purple as part of the "vetting process"to be hired at Bendix IMO.
I was fortunate enough to pass muster with Bill and thus be privilged to work at Bendix Aerospace/Allied and be exposed to the breadth, clarity and tough mindedness of his thinking. I also learned of his kindness and compassion.He had great impact on my life ..I'm saddened at his passing.

Bill's death ends a wonderful Bendix era for many of us who had the privilege of working for him. My prayers and thoughts are with Andi and his entire family at this time of loss.
