I was very sorry to hear of Bill's passing and send my condolences to his family and friends. I met Bill while he worked for First Broadcasting and got to know him pretty well. I found him to be a real nice, down to earth guy and super sharp. We collaborated on several projects while he was with First Broadcasting and GBS.

I was a work colleague of Bill's for about 17 years. I was shocked to hear this news. I learned a lot from Bill about the broadcast engineering industry and on behalf of myself and my other work colleagues we express our condolences to Bill, his family and the rest of the GeoBroadcast Solutions team.

My deepest sympathy for the lost of Billy. We were great friends throughout high school and college. We were college roommates and I had the privilege to be best man at his wedding. This is such a unexpected loss and my heart is broken. May God bless all his family and friends and may he comfort you in this time of need.
