I worked with Willis multiple times over the years we were here at ICON and am truly saddened to learn of his passing. Willis was warm, kind, caring, spiritual person and made you feel better just by being in his presence. He was intelligent, thoughtful and respected his investigators teams and his co-workers. He was quick to make you laugh and always comforted you with a word, a hand on your shoulder or “ I’m here for you” message when you had a challenge. His smile was contagious and brightened the day. When he talked of family you could see the love in his eyes and feel it in the way he spoke. I am so blessed to have known him. We lost a beautiful friend and colleague in his passing. My sincerest and deepest sympathy to his family and friends.

WIllis was one of my favorite people to work with at ICON. He was knowledgeable, peaceful, calm and wonderful to talk to about any topic. He had a sensibility about him that made me feel like everything was going to be OK. This came through even related to his cancer diagnosis. I am honored to have known him, wished I had more time around him and I will miss him.

I had the pleasure of working with Will. He was a wonderful soul! We had breakfast together just a little while ago and I was so glad we did. He will be so missed by his colleagues.

I got the opportunity to work with Willis as a CRA. He was such a wonderful, kind man and it was always a joy to work together. He was always willing to share his experience and wisdom. I learned a lot from him. I am saddened by this news and my thoughts and prayers are with his family and loved ones.

Willis was part of my indirect team, still I knew him amongst the hundred people who report into me. A wonderful employee and a most wonderful person. My thoughts are with the family in this time of sadness and of great loss.
