William Tompkins, or Bill to his many friends, was a speaker at our Symposium last month in Las Vegas, NV. Bob Wood, his good friend and editor of his autobiography, reported that this began with a sudden fall on Saturday followed by a medical evaluation and his death early morning of the 21st of August from a brain bleed.
Bill’s involvement in the UFO mystery began in 1942 when he was the Naval courier for reports on German covert activities before, during and after WWII. A Navy “insider,” Bill wanted to tell his whole story about the Navy’s background in the alleged secret space program.
We were fortunate to have him speak and participate on a panel at our Symposium last month.
MUFON joins those close to Bill in regretting his passing because he still had more to tell us.
There will be a service for him on this Saturday at 10 a.m. (August 26) at the Immaculate Conception Church, 2540 San Diego Avenue, San Diego, CA 92110. It is in the community called “Old Town.” Please feel welcome to attend, and invite others who might like to come.
