    Bill was a fellow Australian and prolific comet hunter and discoverer

    Quoted from the Ice In Space site

    He will be truly missed in the astronomical community :(

    Regards

    Hi Greg,

    Personally, not really well. I have known of his work for many years
    It was only after coming to Australia, That I met him once at an astronomy get-together

    considering his accomplishments, he was a quiet and humble guy and always willing to help out
    newcomers to the astronomy hobby

    regards
    Dave
