  1. I’ve known Bill for more than twenty years, even though we never physically met. We had many a long conversation both online and by email over the years…always about gaming. He gave me good advice long ago when my oldest went to the Point. He really will be long remembered.

  2. I was truly sad to read this news. I had known Bill on and off over the years, and he was real wargamer and enjoy what he was doing. I always found him friendly, and we always up for a good chat. You will be missed.

  3. I had just corresponded with him less than a month ago via email regarding a project that he had been working on. This is very sad news indeed. Prayers for Bill’s family and friends in this time of grief.

  4. I only met Bill in person recently, having corresponded with him on and off for years. He was a great guy and always supportive of both players and designers in the wargaming hobby. His presence will be sorely missed.

  5. Sad news indeed. The passing of many notables of the industry is disturbing, especially when some are similar ages to myself. Al Nofi and Bill now, what a rotten couple of months.

  6. I am very sad to read about his passing. Bill once inquired about Cd’s from one of his favorite bands Golden Evaring(s) and I think I got him all he wanted. Needless to say I got soms stuff in return and a good feeling about his personality. Hé will be missed.

  7. Very sad to hear of his sudden passing! My condolences to his family. Bill, you will be missed.

  8. Bill’s classmates will miss him. He was a gracious to everyone he met and loved his class, West Point, and his deep regard for the US Army Rangers. Most important, Bill talked about his wife and family and loved them dearly. If there is anything we can do for the family please let us know.
