Vadim Moldovan, Teaching colleague: Bill is gone. He was 78. The best colleague, mentor, and friend that one can ask for. He was a confidant, consiglieri, and comrade.
We travelled together all over Italy (twice) and all over Moldova (four times), Our Moldova projects would not have happened without him.
Bill was a true intellectual, kindest soul, and faithful friend. One of a kind. The world will shrink without him but he will remain shining in the hearts of those who knew him.
