Bill and his family devoted many hours to the sport of short track speedskating at great time, expense and adversities. He pioneered electronic timing in the US. His devotion and sincerity can never be questioned. Hopefully his efforts will stimulate others in the future to follow in his footsteps. He will be missed.
