RIP my friend, Bill you were the nicest and kindest man I have ever met. I use to kid you about being Mr Sensitive but it was true. I only saw you upset Once due to one of your recruits not taking basic training serious. You were always willing to help and always did your best at anything you did. I will remember your Tie even when one was not required. I never got to Meet your wife but you talked about her every time we met so I know you will be missed by her an all your friends.

To my old neighborhood and school friends, the Pacer Family - so very sorry for the loss of Bill (Billy when we were kids...). I'm sure Kate was waiting for him. Am missing her as well since we had just reconnected prior to her death. Hugs and prayers.

Bill, rest in peace dear friend. Lori, my deepest condolences. I have been thinking about Bill all week...Holy Spirit must have placed him on my heart. I'm sorry I can't make the wake or funeral; don't drive as you may remember. Not only was Bill wonderful in leading our MD group, he was a Calspan employee like myself as well. A wonderful man, husband and friend. Prayers and love being sent

I first "met" Bill as a remote researcher, checking in his immaculate, perfect cases. Nothing went out the door at less than his best. Ever. Returning to Calspan years later, I found a friend and mentor in-house. Mr. Bill made you feel genuinely welcome, and no question too foolish. Renowned for novels on a tiny 1x2 post-it, he was always "thinking green." I enjoyed his stories of the bicycling trips he and Lori would take - laughing through the tumbles of course- and trading our dogs' shenanigan's. And how he'd beam sharing where Lori would be singing next. Ever so thoughtful, I received a beautiful buffalo when I left NY (still treasured on my desk). Like the buffalo, his strength, character, and goodwill shall never be forgotten.

To the Pacer family... My sincerest condolences, I was blessed with the opportunity to work with Bill at Calspan. He was one of the most genuine, kindhearted, humorous and knowledgeable person I have ever met. When we had questions at work, Bill was the “go to” guy for many of us. He had a friendly greeting for everyone who entered his office. He will be greatly missed.

My husband, Ken and I absolutely loved Bill. He was such a terrific person. He was very caring. Sometimes, when I called Lori, she would put Bill on the phone. Bill would tell me how great it was to hear my voice and some other nice things, which I cannot remember off the top of my head. He died from a dreadful disease which he did not deserve. He was definitely a trooper, as was Lori during the whole ordeal. It was amazing how Lori took care of Bill. We love you and miss you Bill.

Bill was a friend to all and always a friend. His quiet strength, kindness and humor made a lasting impression on everyone he knew. He proudly wore his heart on his sleeve for Lori and his family, truly a beautiful thing to see,and my heart goes out to all of you. I will always treasure the evening spent with Bill and Lori in January, and hearing about his Segway adventures. Nobody could tell a story like Bill could, and the best part was him laughing all the while...his laugh was contagious and something I will always remember. His big, smiling "Welcome, it is a pleasure to see you" at work always made each day a good one, and I am certain that same greeting was waiting for him in heaven. Knowing Bill made me a better person and someone I will never forget.
