Debbie and Family: I am so sorry for your loss! Debbie as you know I have known Bill since I started with WEC in 1974. He was one of the brightest engineers I ever worked with. I had the honor of working with him when he was the main cog in developing the multi-axis, multi frequency seismic testing to certify our equipment. I will never forget his devotion to his work or the help that he provided to me as an electrical engineer trying to understand the work he was providing!! What a loss to the new young engineers.

Bill and Debby have been dear friends of mine since the 1970's. She is the sister I never had. Debby and I were in each other's wedding. Even though distant in miles, we were always a phone call away throughout the years. After our marriage, my husband Lee came to know them as well. Because of our common faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, we have the hope of being united with Bill once again in Heaven. Although he will be greatly missed by his family and friends, we know that Bill celebrated the best Christmas ever this year-with the Savior himself.

Debbie and Family. I am so sorry for your loss. I knew Bill at Westinghouse when we were at Penn Center 2. We sat close by to each other and shared stories about what was going on in our families. Bill was always thoughtful of others. I remember that shortly after I had retired, he called to ask if I was interested in a temporary assignment at a nuclear plant in New England. May he rest in peace.
