I wanted to let you know that I did not find out about Dr. Wms passing until he was gone almost a month. I worked closely with him for many years in the Chemistry department. I helped him move his office and went to his house and picked him up. I received my last email from him on June 11 after his fall. I considered him a friend as well as a professor. He was always so kind and nice to me. Our respect went both ways. I will surely miss him, his kind words and phone calls. Your family has my deepest condolences and sympathy. I wish the best for his family in your time of grief. If you printed a copy of his obituary I would love to have a copy. With a sad heart, Sincerely Pam Roach

Ffrancon was a devoted member of our Chemistry faculty for many years, and had a wonderful, calm and knowledgeable manner about him. He will surely be missed. Gratefully, he will be remembered by future generations through the Ffrancon Williams Faculty Award in Chemistry Endowment.

On behalf of Dr. Feigerle, Dr. Nemykin and the faculty, staff and students of the UT Knoxville Department of Chemistry
