My sincere condolences to Bill's family. I worked with both Bill and Zeb in Dubai from 1979 to 1981. It was such a pleasure working for Bill - a real gentleman. I wish the family very best to you all and I know Bill will be missed tremendously.

Bill was a close friend and colleague from 1979 till date. I have been working with him from 1979 till July 31, 2021 when I retired from the business. He was a great friend and guide when he was stationed in Dubai and our friendship grew over the years. Mary Ann was so gracious when she took my wife, Suchitra, around The Netherlands during our first visit to that country in 1981. We shared a lot of great moments in our life and these fond memories will stay with us for the rest of our lives. We had made plans to get together in Florida in March next year and unfortunately he left us prematurely. We are going to miss his very badly. May he Rest in Peace. Pray Almighty God give Mary Ann and their two sons the strength to bear this very sad loss. Suchitra & Narayan

Bill was a friend and Sea-Land colleague when we worked together in Dubai from 1979 to 1981. He did a phenomenal job coordinating all our sales and marketing efforts in Saudi Arabia, India and in the United Arab Emirates leading to a very successful operation with Sea-Land in those years. Everyone he worked with in these countries held him with the highest respect. He imparted extensive sales skills to our sales employees in these countries and they responded in kind. He always had a positive attitude that he imparted to each of our employees in each country. He will be fondly and thankfully remembered by all of us. May God bless his soul and comfort his wife, Mary Ann and all his family in the days, months and years to come. He will be missed but fondly remembered. Zeb McMillan
