Not sure what to say?

Will loved Veterans for Peace and Veterans for Peace loved him. He was a wealth of information on world events and their history. Harvey Thorstad

In the couple years I saw him at Wy'east UU church, Will was always eager to connect and inspiring to connect with- he never lost his passion or the belief that another world is possible.

Moving to Portland in the Fall of 2018 I found Wy'east Unitarian Universalist church quickly and met Will soon after that. What I will always remember about Will was his passion for justice and his spirit to fight for what he believed in. He was inspirational and will be deeply missed.

My blessings to the family,

Ron Thurston

Will was an incredible man; intelligent and involved. He will be missed by me, his family and mine.

Will was my good friend and mentor these past eight years. I ferried him to Humanist and VFP meetings as well as to grocery stores and our Sunday coffee clatches. We were both regular attendees at the Sandy peace vigil. I learned a lot of history and how to live a long and meaningful life from this man. R.I.P. Will.

Mr. Poole was an incredible Russian teacher and an amazing educator who understood how to teach a foreign language. I have many fond memories of him.

I met Will at a political group we both attended. I always thought he was an amazing man! He was so active and action oriented. Just talking about something was not enough, he was always inviting us to join in the action!
I have been wondering about him, and my friend found the posting. I am forever amazed by this wonderful man!
As long as my mind keeps working, I will remember Will.

I shall always remember Will's thought-provoking and lively discussions at Eastrose Unitarian Church. He was so passionate for peace. My love goes out to his family at this difficult time. He was a jewel.

I will cherish my memories forever
