In Memoriam
William C. Dewey, PhD 1929-2021
Family, Friends and Colleagues of William Dewey,
Bill passed away peacefully on November 15, 2021. 
He leaves a trail of stars behind, having touched literally thousands of lives.
His spirit lives on in each and every one of us. He touched all of us with his enthusiasm, intelligence, and kindness. Bill was one of the Heroes of our Society.
Bill's colleagues are composing a memory of his life, which will be available after the first of the year. 
A Celebration of his Life will be planned to remember, share stories, and revive some of the memories he left upon all of us. The Celebration of his Life will be at Fernwood Cemetery, Mill Valley, CA in the Spring of 2022 (probably late May-time and date to be determined).
Please forward this notice to others to be sure to reach everyone who knew him.
Bill was laid to rest at Fernwood Cemetery, Mill Valley on December 4, 2021.
