Not sure what to say?

Bill devoted uncountable hours to the radio monitoring hobby. His decades long contribution was appreciated by both hobbyists and professionals in the radio community. He will be missed on many levels.

For 25 years, I worked with Bill putting together the NASWA Journal, which means for 25 years, I went to his house in Levittown, then to the printer, and then out for Chinese food at Wing Wah. I absolutely treasure those Saturday afternoons discussing everything under the sun. I am going to miss you terribly, Bill.

Bill was a very special and rare man in the radio hobby. As if he didn't already have enough to do with his publishing duties for NASWA, he also took on publishing of the Lowdown journal. This specialty journal for longwave signals went on for decades longer because of Bill's devotion to the task. He will be sadly missed and serves as an inspiration to all. Rest in peace, Bill, and thank you for your service--to us and to your country.

Bill was a wonderful person who worked tirelessly as publisher for the North American Shortwave Association. I always knew him to be straightforward with a keen sense of humor. Rest in peace, Bill, and thank you.

Rest in Peace Bill, a true giant of the radio hobby world. I will miss our regular chats about English Premier League Soccer, of which you were such a big fan.

On behalf of the Board of Directors and the membership of the Canadian International DX Club, we wish to extend our condolences to Bill's family and friends. His long years of dedication to our radio monitoring hobby will long be remembered and greatly appreciated by everyone in our circle of radio friends.

Bill, Bill, Bill, I'm surely going to miss you. Many fond memories of time spent with you and the great discussions we had. NASWA was carried on your shoulders and many people joined the writing and editorial staff because of you. Safe travels to the afterlife my
