Not sure what to say?

To the family of Dr. Willard Carmean.

Just a short note to say how sorry I was to read about the passing of your father and grandfather. You see, I got to know him when I was a student in agriculture (1954 to 1958) at Ohio University in Athens and he was a researcher in forest soils in the small, US Forest Service unit (Wayne National Forest) group that was housed in the, uppermost floor of the old Agriculture Building. I wonder whatever happened to that place with its 10 ft. high...

I was very saddened to learn of Will's passing. My sincere condolences to Kim and family. I knew Willard as a colleague at Lakehead University and as Kim's father. He was a special individual. I admired Will's dedication as a researcher and enjoyed his amazing knowledge of so many places around the world. He will be missed.

Kim, Kelli and Charles, I enjoyed all my time with Will as colleague and friend, especially our lunch discussions in the faculty lounge; he always drank chocolate milk. And I will miss his presence on our earth.

I am saddened by Willard's passing. His passion for Ontario's old-growth forest was unmatched. His legacy lives on among the stately pines of Greenwood Lake. Thank you Will.

To Willard's family, my sincere condolences for the loss of your father & grandfather. Willard seemed a gentle man in every sense of the word and it was always a pleasure to work with him on the various committees to which he gave his time. Bev Stefureak (formerly of Lakehead University)

Will was a good and contributing member of the Faculty of Forestry. We will always remember his engaging chuckle.

It was always very pleasant to run into Will in the halls of Lakehead University and share a story. Hoping to keep the legacy of his favourite old growth forest at Greenwood Lake alive. He will be missed and fondly remembered.

My condolences to the family of Dr. Willard Carmean. I wasn't priviledged to ever meet him or his family. He certainly made a great mark on this world.

Kim and family, I valued Will's expertise in forestry and his easygoing friendship. Thinking of you, Ian.
