I've known Bill for roughly forty years, and respected him for just as long. I've been his employee, his supplier, and his customer. I've recommended him to my clients, without hesitation, consulted with him, and for him. His knowledge was awesome, his integrity impressive, his sense of humour philosophical, his friendship genuine.
He will be sorely missed.
