Today my good friend Robert "Bill" Adams has passed away at the age of 91. Bill was a Merchant Marine during WWII and later spent several years working for Isthmian Lines and sailing on board the USS Steel Worker.

Bill spent many years wondering what happened to the Steel Worker and his old company. Thanks to your site I was able to give him much history about the company and his ship. He practically wore out the papers that I printed from your webpage from reading them so often. I just wanted to give my sincerest thanks everyone who made that information available on this webpage. It sure did mean a lot to Bill.


Here is an interview that I conducted with Bill in 2009:http://radiorestorer.com/merchantmarine.html
