A great friend from Paramax days

Fare seas and safe harbors mate. I'll miss your thoughtful rebellious spirit and insightful ironic sense of humor.

One of the best Pirates I ever sailed with, you will be missed Bill !

Dear Bill, you were one of those shipmates I will never forget. Glad to have sailed, stood watch with you, and to have been a travelling companion on occasion when we served in submarines. I fondly recall an escapade or two as well. Bill, I will miss your great sense of humour. Prayers.

So saddened to hear of Bills passing. My heart goes out to his family. I served with Bill in submarines and worked with him at Lockheed Martin. Rest in peace Bill

I remember the first time I met Bill so many years ago. Sarcastic, sceptical, and so friendly and helpful to everyone he met. A man who's heart was as big as his smile. Deep condolences to the entire family. Rest in peace.

My deepest condolences to Bill's family. I have many fond memories of talks (and the odd escapade) with Bill during out time in submarines. He will be missed.
