Bill was always quite a character with his quirky sense of humor. I do remember the black and white photography he did. He took a picture of me years ago and I have to say it was really good. We will miss you, Your cousin, AnnMarie Hill

I was saddened to hear of Bill's passing. I have worked with Bill in NASA Spectrum Management for over 10 years and he has always been the consummate professional, dedicated NASA Spectrum contributor, and a friendly person. He has always been helpful to anyone who sought his knowledge and vast experience. Bill's presence will be missed, but his memory will live on. May God bless his family, friends, and loved ones and provide comfort to them in these difficult days.
