BFMA Loses a Long-term Member
Bill Hill died tragically on Wednesday, June 18 from an industrial explosion.  He had previously served on the association Board of Directors and the Form Systems Certification Board, presented classes, and relished seeing friends at each year’s Symposium. Bill shared his knowledge and love of forms with anyone who would listen. He embraced life and all its adventures with a big dose of fun and stories. We wish his family well.
