My deepest condolences to Bill’s family. I worked with Bill in the late 90’s and will always be thankful for the opportunity. He was always generous with his time and wisdom, and I appreciated the support he gave our research. And of course I’ll never forget the Antarctic experience made possible by his incredible efforts. Rest in piece, Bill.
