Dear Mrs. Swan,
Many times throughout these past years I've thought of Bill, especially when something BACnet happens. He was very kind and encouraging to all in our engineering community, and always quick with a smile or laugh. I'm glad to have met with him at various meetings over the years.
May the Lord continue to grant you and your daughters His comfort in Him.

I just found this page and learned of Bill's passing. I am so very saddened. I haven't had contact with you, Kathy, for quite a few years, and would love to connect again. God be with you.

Dear Kathy, I just heard about Bill's passing the last week as Brian and Caty were on a visit to Seattle and your neighbor, who bought our home, told them. I am so sorry and wanted to let you know that I have thought about you two over the years after we left Redmond. I truly enjoyed being your neighbor and enjoyed listening to Bill's bagpipes .. wished he played more often! I still think about those days. Please know that he is in a good place and we send our condolences even though so late. Please take care and hope your life with your daughters is going well.

My husband and I met Bill and Kathy while living in Washington.Our memories of Bill was how faithful,kind and steadfast he was over the deepest valley a parent could experience. We were deeply saddened that he never experienced the vindication he so richly deserved. Our prayers now are that his two girls will carry in their hearts the.memory of a wonderful father, a faithful husband they were denied in really knowing.m Doiglas £ Beryl Maskell

Dear Kathy, Elizabeth, and Heather,
I am thankful for having had the chance to know Bill for quite a good time.
He liked our hometown "Forst in Baden" with its wonderful Baroque castle. I have lost a wonderful, great friend and the global Building Automation community an international active diplomat - he never can be replaced, so it is a real loss to the world.
I also say, a very rare talent.
Please give my condolences to his parents.
Please stay in touch. It's been so nice to get to know you over the last few years.
All our best,
The Kranz Family, Forst/Baden, Germany

I have enjoyed many a debate with Bill on various subjects. Often times we were on the same page, but alas there were times we disagreed. However whether we agreed or disagreed, we both treated each other with due respect.
My heart hurts for his absence and He will be missed, but he is in a much better place today. Absent from the body, but present with the Lord, and in the Lords care is where he will be forever.
God speed sionnsar, and may the Lord bless and protect those of your family who grieve the loss of your physical presence.

He was a delight to read and even to spar with.
May God bless all those he loved and who loved him with treasured memories and the comfort only God can provide.
