I was very sorry to hear of Bill's passing today. We joined the Hackerlab at the same time and helped each other with our projects. I really liked the inlaid cutting boards that he was making and it inspired me to make my own (see picture). Bill was a great guy and I am sorry that I didn't know him longer.

The love of magic brought Bill & I together. We met in 2009 at Magic Live, a convention in Las Vegas. I was just getting back into magic and was attending this convention by myself. Not clear on how we met, probably sitting next to each other during a lecture or grabbing a bite in the food court, but Bill and his magic buddy, Craig, welcomed me into their clan. Dressed in his trademarked Hawaiian shirt, Bill was always willing to show you the latest effect he was working, helping me with my questionable skills, eager to go the next performance and indefatiguable when it came to roaming the dealer's room searching for his next magical purchase. Bill, Craig and I attended several more Magic Live conventions together and I was so looking forward to seeing his friendly face in August, sharing a $1 hot dog & Corona, trying to figure out how that deck turned blank and picking another card, any card.

The world was a far better, magical place with Bill Deming
