    Bill built very few Ukes, but they are extraordinarily fine.
    His engineering was really something and cosmetically stunning.
    I just received a notice that he was tragically killed in a motorcycle accident earlier this week. My deepest sympathies to Cathy and all the family. Bill was a good friend and I will miss him.

    I hope you are holding up okay. Positive thoughts and vibes for you and his family.

    So sorry to hear of his passing. He was a great guy with a wonderful knowledge of ukuleles and woods. We saw him every March in Carmel Valley at Smoldering Uke. He’ll be missed.
