    I had the honor and privilege to know and work with William for several years at Vision Airlines. William was the epitome of the perfect southern gentlemen in manner, speech and grace. His easy going unruffled style made him a joy to work with. My favorite memory was watching him turn a circus like sommersault after sliding down the emergency mock-up at UAL's Denver training academy. Bill was the best dressed man on our crew, and always wore a nicely tailored jacket to dinner. William you were a first-class act my friend, I take comfort knowing you are now in His presence. God Bless, Larry

    Thank you William, my dad was a wonderful friend to many and always had the best stories. He was a talented pilot who loved to fly and spent majority of his life in the air or fixing up planes to get back in the air. He will always be remembered for his wild spirit and will be greatly missed.
