William Gordon Pearson died in Pinelands on 17 October 2012 at the age of 73. Affectionately known as Billy, Bill or sometimes Willy by colleagues and friends, but his family called him William. He was born with scoliosis, but never let this physical disability stand in his way to do what he wanted. He certainly never made it an excuse for not doing anything. To all who knew him, Billy was a special person.
