Classic Optimod Refurbisher Bill Sacks Passes

Post by Bill DeFelice » Wed Jan 11, 2017 7:43 am

An engineering colleague just informed me that Bill Sacks apparently lost his battle with cancer. I don't have any other details at the present time.

Condolences going out to his wife, Kim and the rest of his family.

Kim confirmed it on her Facebook page this morning. Sad day indeed.

I wasn't aware that he was the same Bill from Straight Wire Audio. Talk about a small world.
