I worked with Will many many years. He worked in the Cold Test Room as a Systems Test Inspector. I was responsible if something was wrong, so Mr. Doss and I worked together. We were a small group of inspectors and we all took care of each other. I Learned a lot from Mr. Doss, several years later I moved to another Department that required the knowledge he had taught me. Mr. Doss was highly respected and loved by everyone. I extend my deepest sympathy to his family.
