The Amputee Coalition is greatly saddened by the news of Bill Nessel’s passing. Bill was one of the faces I always looked for on the first day of conference and it was always wearing a smile. Over the years “Wild Bill” took many pictures that he shared with the Amputee Coalition and that we treasure especially now. He was a leader and was never afraid to speak his mind on issues of advocacy and peer support. Bill kept us all entertained with his wit and sense of humor. Bill will be sorely missed by his support group and the amputee community at large. We send our heartfelt condolences to his family, friends and all he inspired with his unstoppable spirit. Rest in peace my friend.
