  1. B.C. was a great friend and co-worker.He was very generous and always a team player. I will miss our daily talks and his advice on things in general..In 28 years at Northrop I have never met anyone like B.C..One last time..”GO COWBOYS” your friend Bill.

  2. B.C. was my mentor. He took me under his wing and helped me to learn the ropes when I first came into this department 10 years ago. He is the type of person that we all loved. He only had kind words to say about anyone.I am going to miss my friend terribly, and miss his awnry little ways. God Bless all of his friends and relatives during this time, you are in my heart.

  3. I have know BC since our time together in Saudi Arabia. The thing I will remember most about BC is his smile! No matter what was going on, even if he was upset with you, he would greet you with a smile. He will be smiling down on us from heaven.

  4. I never saw BC without a smile or generous and friendly greeting. He recognized our team as a group of very hardworking individuals — focused on the same goals. He clearly found the secret of balancing work and enjoyment of life and friends. Though I knew him for just a short time — I feel that we were friends for a very long time. I will miss him for many reasons — but most of all — because he was a gentleman and a very kind human being. God Bless You BC — my friend.
