I'm so sorry to hear that, he was a fighter no ifs and buts about it, was thinking about him a couple of days ago and was wondering how he was doing, figured something was going on but not this.
My condolences to his family and to those who cared about him.
So sorry to hear, he did fight the good fight. So glad he at least got out to his shop , where he wanted to for so long . He sure was happy about it too. Bill my ole buddy we never met in person , but friends are friends no matter. Rest now , no more pain to suffer with.
To his wife and family I send my condolences and will pray for them at this time of there loss.
Good By Bill ,, we will miss you here.
Bill was always here with suggested techniques, tools and ideas he gained from his decades of experience.
A number of times I saw him giving away his spare tools(drill bits, reamers, end mills) to help someone that needed them.
He will be missed here.
