This is sorrowful to hear. Will was very soft spoken, and very much worth
listening to. He had a penchant for 3 wheel designs and I'm pretty sure
that influenced my team going that route last year.

If the club has anything like an honor roll, I'd be happy if we added him
to it. Member from 2005 to 2022.

Here are a couple of memories:

Rest in Peace Will,
