Rest your oars shipmate we have the watch. I served on the Andrew Jackson with Billy. He was a great mentor,
Teacher and shipmate. He never asked anyone to do something he hadn’t .. prayers to his family
I met Bill many years ago when he led field research collections for Dr. Al Sanders permits on the Nebraska National Forests and Grasslands and the Dakota Prairie Grasslands. He also came out with Debbie and participated on a Forest Service Passport in Time project at a Late Cretaceous Pierre Shale locality. What I remember about Bill is him wearing rubber rain boots everywhere and he was always in good spirits! He was a fossil whisperer! I enjoyed the time we shared finding fossils! I have missed his company.
