I fondly remember Wild Bill advice and help when I ran into some troubles designing several scenarios for SPWAW many, many years ago.

R.I.P. Wild Bill

Real sorry to hear this, worked with Bill way back with SPWAW, when it was still Steel Lightning, a mod by a fellow last name Grasse. Bill gave me my call sign, Warhorse. I remember him stating one day, "Mike is a workhorse, no, a Warhorse", so I took the name. RIP buddy.

Rest in Peace Bill, you will be missed. He was a great guy as well as one heck of a wargamer.

I never met Bill, but I saw his name on quite a few scenarios and campaigns from various computer war games and even a couple of board war games. Reading his bio I was slightly shocked that he never served in the USMC, for some reason I always envisioned him as a Marine. I was quite pleased to hear he was a Missionary. I know based on what I read from his bio he is walking with the Lord in Heaven now, God bless and comfort his family.

I just wanted to repost the comment I wrote at The Depot in regards to the passing of Bill Wilder:

I had the honour of communicating with Bill both publicly on the boards at Matrix & The Depot as well as privately through PM's and emails. Simply put, he was one of the nicest, classiest and warm human beings I have ever had the pleasure to know even though I never met him.
He also nurtured and encouraged many of the folks who created scenarios & campaigns. I know that especially "M4"Jess was such a person.

We all loved Bill and I am heartbroken that he is gone. His legacy both as a scenario designer and even more, as a person, will live on in all of us forever.

Rest in Peace, Colonel!
