A self-taught engineer, inventor, husband, father, and grandfather, passed a way on July 26, 2002 in Paradise, California.

William enlisted in the Navy as a radio man at age 18 and rose to the rank of Warrant Officer after creating and patenting a procedure known as Inverse Loran which made it possible to locate enemy U-boats during World War II. Inverse Loran was kept top secret and classified information for 50 years. William recently received a "Congressional Recognition" for this accomplishment. William served 20 years in active duty in the Navy and 10 years in the navy reserves.

He later started a second company, Devman, which dealt with the development and manufa-cturing of reflectometer and other components. William holds 5 military patents and 4 private sector patents in the electronic field.

William retired to Paradise from Orange Country 16 years ago. He married Bernie Rogers in 1988 and finished building his dream house on Buschmann Road. William and Bernie have enjoyed experiencing nature from their very own porch, tinkering in the shop, traveling in their motor home, and visiting with friends and family.
