I'll miss you Bill. We shared the same passion
for the HP41 calculators and though we never met, you always considered me as a friend.
Hope you rest in peace, my friend and that we'll meet in the other world. My condolences to your family.

Bill you will be missed! His passing took me by shock. It seemed like yesterday we were talking on the radio.

Although I never personally met Bill, I've known him for well over 10 years on the radio. Even still, I hope he would have called me a friend. I know I felt a certain friendship with him.

He was always cheerful and knowledgeable in several subjects. It was fun to have a challenging discussions with him on a myriad of topics.

May all of your questions be answered now Bill.

Rest in peace my friend!
