So sorry to learn of Bill's passing. I enjoyed working with him at HQ FORSCOM and the many lunches we shared as members of the "lunch bunch." After retirement, we would meet for lunch with a couple buddies and share our "life after FORSCOM" experiences! Bill had a great sense of humor and will be greatly missed.
