Just heard the sad news printed in the CD Summary. Bill's lively, tongue-in-cheek writing style performed a great service to the health of Oregonians as I am sure that the CD Summary had a more faithful readership than any similar publication around the country. And what is read, is remembered and learned from. I looked forward to his funny take on epidemiology with each issue and kept a number of favorites around to re-read. My favorite story of his will always be the one about the E. coli contaminated venison that was being sliced up in the garage with a band-saw.

He will be missed, and Oregon epidemiology will never be quite the same... though I suspect the CD Summary will never revert to being a dry academic missive.
