Just spoke with his daughter and Bill was riding his motorcycle to work and they think he suffered a heart attack and EMS could not revive him.

Bill was really nice and we had some good conversations. I remember he wrote an informative document to give to new riders. He was always trying to help. My condolences to the family. You will be in my prayers.
