My deepest sympathy to the family.I knew Bill mainly through work on international studies of spectrum which included trips to Geneva. He always had a smile on his face and took on adversarial positions calmly and very often won his point. Bill was very friendly and full of fun.

Bill is a person I knew in Bell dedicated to preserving the radio spectrum. We were foes and fiends. In 1992 I had to argue against him in Spain at world Radio conference although we both worked for same company. But we remained friends. When Bell canada ana Bell Mobility combined in 2001 he reported to me. He was true believer of ITU. His dedication was beyond any words. Good bye my friend.

Bill was one of the finest individuals I have ever met. We worked together at the Radio Advisory Board over the last several years and I was continually inspired by his knowledge and expertise in the field of radiocommunications. I particularly welcomed his solid yet gentle counsel on the files we worked on. Throughout the industry, Bill was respected for his quiet and professional approach to dealing with issues. His passing is a major loss for our community and we will miss him dearly. To Louise and the family, we offer our heartfelt condolences.

I was greatly saddened to get notice of Bill's death. I worked with Bill over many years on spectrum matters and always found him unfailingly professional, decent, patient and helpful. This was so even when we were professional adversaries and I first encountered Bill at the RABC when he still worked at Bell Canada. I learned a lot from Bill over the years and will always remember him as a man of principle who was a fine example for others in our shared field. May he rest in peace and may his memory be a blessing always to his family and friends.
