    R.I.P. Bill Ricker

    I just learned that Bill Ricker lost his battle with cancer (his wife, Sue, just informed me). We will miss Bill.

    I am so sorry to hear that. I talked to Bill at ITEA conferences. He was very nice.

    I'm sorry to read that. Bill and I had some nice chats on Facebook, and he marketed some very useful euphonium after-market products. He will be missed.

    So sorry to hear. My wife, Linda, and I met Bill at the 2016 ITEA at Knoxville. He gave us a ride one day. Really nice guy.
