FENDER III, WILLIAM B.  
FENDER WILLIAM B. FENDER, III (Age 81) Passed away on May 22, 2016. Born and raised in New York City to Joy Jones Fender and William Fender II, he also briefly lived in Sea Cliff, Long Island. Bill is survived by his beloved wife, Lynne; his children, Valerie, Christopher (Nancy), Scott (Alison), and Neil (Lucianna); and seven grandchildren, Paul, Michael, Christian, Kelli, Kolby, Jack and Chloe. He is also survived by three siblings, Ellen, Peter and Hank. He adored them all, and was especially proud of his children''s character and accomplishments. Bill was a man of integrity, humility, compassion, and respect for others. Bill enlisted in the Air Force in 1957 and was selected to attend Yale University''s Institute for Far Eastern Languages (IFEL) for Mandarin Chinese language emersion. He trained to become a translator of Chinese pilots'' radio traffic. Upon completion of his Air Force tour of duty, he stayed on at Yale for another six years to manage new Air Force Mandarin students, class schedules and their Professors and Instructors. He lived in New Haven for a total of 10 years. In 1968, Bill (and family) were brought to Washington, DC where he designed and programmed the first ever computerized Mandarin/English dictionary, with funding from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency. The dictionary has since been used by millions of researchers, academics, and business people. In the DC area, he worked for decades as a systems analyst and programmer for Chase, Rosen and Wallace (CRW), and then for Logicon. His clients included the Environmental Protection Agency, Department of Transportation, Central Intelligence Agency, and Department of Defense. In 1995, Bill retired from that career to pursue his real first love - jazz guitar. A lifetime enthusiast of jazz history and musicians, he created a WEB-based company called Legato Guitars, whose motto was "Keepers of the Flame." Bill bought and sold to customers around the world previously-owned and brand new archtop jazz guitars. He earned a reputation for the highest level of integrity regarding his assessment of their quality and condition. Independent luthiers he represented to sell their brand new instruments were honored to have him carry their guitars. In 2005, when Lynne retired, she and Bill moved from their Alexandria home to Wilmington, NC. Here, Bill continued managing Legato Guitars until 2011. In Wilmington, Bill was a member of the Cape Fear Jazz Society and served on its Board for several years. Bill and Lynne rarely missed a Friday night jazz concert in Airlie Gardens, nor the annual NC Jazz Festival. He was a devoted volunteer tutor with the Cape Fear Literacy Council, tutoring both native English speakers in reading, math, and sciences, as well as his most recent tutee for whom English is her second language. A celebration of Bill Fender''s life is planned by his devoted wife and children to be held at a date to be determined in September, 2016. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the University of North Carolina Wilmington (UNCW) Music Department''s Jazz Program with a check to UNCW Jazz Trust Fund, or to the North Carolina Jazz Festival: www.ncjazzfestival.com www.ncjazzfestival.com
