I'm sorry that I'm so late in posting this message. I hadn't heard about Bill's passing. Bill was one of the best pilots that I've ever flown with. His personality and teaching style will never be replicated. I can still see him sitting beside me in the Schweizer 300s and 333s his high knees in his faded green flight suit, asking the same old question: "Now, what are three indications of an engine failure?" Thank you Bill for the invaluable advice and love of helicopters that you helped pass on to me. Wilson Gilliam

Dear Bill was my music buddy, boat buddy, flight buddy, BBQ buddy, repair buddy and all-round super-special buddy for well over 25 years. In 1995 he assisted me in installing outdoor lighting at my 1920s house in St. Andrews, Florida, and those lights have come on every evening and gone off every morning since, even during Hurricane Michael. I can honestly say that Bill continues to light up my life! Miss you, buddy. XOXOXo Lorne Brooks Brumm

Bill was the best helicopter pilot I ever flew with over my 3,000 hours of flying experiences. He and I enjoyed several hours flying together at Panama City, FL while he was teaching me how to be a helicopter flight instructor. What an awesome experience. He was hoping I would replace him for the contract work he did in Elmira, NY but that did not work out. I met Bill through the Vietnam Helicopter Pilots Association as he attended a few of our annual reunions. Bill truly was one of the good guys and will be sorely missed.
