R.I.P. Bill Whipple

Wilmer W. "Bill" Whipple
1920 - 2011
We are saddened to report that TACA Director, long-time TACA member and former Tucker Corporation employee Bill Whipple passed away this past Saturday morning, May 7, 2011, in Kent, WA with his wife Sue and their daughters by his side.  This is a tremendous loss for TACA and the Tucker legacy.

A memorial service will be held this Thursday, May 12, 2011.  The Whipple family has requested that, in lieu of flowers, donations be made in Bill's name to the VFW or to TACA.  Please contact us about information about contacting the Whipple family or making a memorial donation to TACA.  Also, we'd appreciate any memories, anecdotes or photos of Bill that you'd like to share for an article in an upcoming issue of Tucker Topics.  These can be forwarded to TACA Secretary and Tucker Topics editor Bill Pommering at  Thank you.
