My condolences to Bill's family.
I had the pleasure of working with Bill at GE before he retired. I admired his ability to focus on the technical aspects of jet engine certification rather than getting tied up in the bureaucratic minutiae. Before I retired, many sought out my guidance in certifying engines for the FAA. Much of the wisdom that I passed on was learned from Bill in my younger years.
