I worked with Bill when I was a biologist with the U.S. Forces Service on the Idaho City and Lowman Ranger Districts in 1978-79. I admired Bill for his backcountry skills and his courage. When I worked alone in the woods, I always had a sense of security when I saw Bill in the area. I knew I could always depend on him.
