It is with a heavy heart that I must post that Bill passed away last week at the of 86. in Colorado Springs Co. he was known here on the RTF as cannuckiller
Bill won the 1972 National Open with NFC AFC Royal Moose's Moe and also judged the 1977 National Amateur
He is one of a few amateur handlers to title both a lab and a Golden Retriever ( FC AFC Ripp N Ready)
Bill had judged over 100 trials major/minor stakes
a former Marine lieutenant, he was a tough man who may have had more than his share of disagreements with fellow competitors and even a few fellow judges...
He had just completed a memoir called " 50 Years to Heel and Back"
I will miss our long talks and all the things he taught me about judging and setting up field trial tests
