My deepest condolences to the family of Bill Milliken. He was an outstanding thinker, developer of ideas, organizer of research, exemplary citizen, and, most important of all, an engineer who knew all aspects of his field, from concept to design to instrumentation and testing, to recognizing the complex physics of a system, to field experience. He was also a great teacher, a witty speaker, a man whose knowledge of his field was unsurpassed, and he had an ability to draw out the best efforts...

A man that I truly admired. I will remember him at "his" corner at Watkins Glen forever may he rest in peace. A pioneer in engineering and a true friend.His books are adored by my grandchildren and myself. Gods speed Bill Milliken, ride that Bugatti in Heaven.

Dear Family of Bill Milliken,
Please accept my condolences for the passing of Bill. I had the opportunity to hear Mr. Milliken and Brock Yates speak at Towne BMW in 2006 - One of the finest speakers and fun stories I have ever heard. God Speed Mr. Milliken and thank you for all you did.

It's always too soon when we lose those we look up to and respect. Gods speed to you Bill, as we say good-bye to a true gentleman and innovator of the racing community. Smalleys Garage, Watkins Glen NY

Your friends at Ford Racing wish to express our deepest condolences on the passing of Bill Milliken. He will always be recognized as a pioneer in motorsports and an inspiration to us all. Thank you for all you have done for the sport.

So sorry to hear of the passing of Bill. He was a true legend and good friend of my father's, Denver Cornett. They can now race together and roll cars together like they did on the streets of Watkins Glen.

Sincere condolences on the passing of one of the greatest men I've ever had the privilege of knowing. A true gentleman, a friend, whose legacy will live forever, Godspeed Bill!
