My wife, Karen, and I were so sorry to hear about the death of a great guy and good friend. Our paths crossed several times during our Air Force careers and again later on when we were working at DFSC. We are n Florida avoid getting the cold but otherwise live in Pickerington. Otherwise I would definitely be there for both. I remember telling him that was from Hebron and he said, “that’s where they had the Cummings Ice Cream shop.” I don’t think I ever met a more selfless man.

I was so saddened to hear of Bill's passing. Bill and I worked together at Lucius D. Clay Keserne in Northern Germany as the weather team to the 2nd Armored Division (Fwd). Not only were we professionally challenged together, were were also friends that extended beyond our time in Garlstedt. May the family take solace in remembering no finer legacy left for us to follow.
