Don't grieve for me, for now I'm free. I'm following the path God laid for me, I took His hand when I heard Him call, I turned my back and left it all. I could not stay another day to laugh, to love, to work, or play. Tasks left undone must stay that way, I found that place at the close of the day. If my parting has left a void Then fill it with remembered joy. A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss, Ah yes, these things, I too, will miss. Be not burdened with times of sorrow. I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow. My life's been full, I savored much: Good friends, good times, a loved one's touch. Perhaps my time seemed all too brief. Don't lengthen it now with undue grief. Lift up your heart and share with me. God wanted me now, He set me free.

  4. It was my great pleasure to meet Bill at our Tesla Lecture Series some years ago, and then both of you when you came to the Tesla conference on Long Island in 2006. I enjoyed Bill’s presentations, and the opportunity I had to get to know him a bit. I always expected to see him again, to learn more from a master of his art. My deepest condolences to you.

  5. I was most honored to have known Bill since the early 1990’s. Bill was a mentor as well as a friend. Peace and comfort to friend and family.

  6. My deepest condolences to the family of William “Bill” Wysock. Bill has been a true inspiration and an originator of tesla coil technology which has undeniably earnt him the title of the “Father of Modern Tesla Coiling”. I unfortunately never got the opportunity to meet Bill in person but I have known of Bill’s work and contributions for over 20 years having first seen his brilliance all those years ago of his Super Model 9 Tesla Coil, still in operation today, at Questacon in Canberra, Australia. Although on the other side of the planet, observing and following Bill over the years has taught me a great deal in engineering excellence and for that I am humbly grateful for Bill having shared so much with us.

    I am sure that Bill’s legacy will live on for a very, very long time, if not forever.

    May he rest in peace and his memories live on within us all.

  7. My deepest condolences to Francis and Bill’s children.

    Bill was always a wealth of information to those with an inquiring mind. He was also quite a character, and an overall a good guy. More than a few of us had our ups and a few downs with him over the years but it was part of what made him who he was to us.

    A little know fact is that in addition to our Tesla Coil connection Bill knew both my grandmother and my uncle and attended both their funerals where he told family members about the great visits he had with them over the years.

    I will be thinking of Bill and wishing Francis my best…


  8. I feel grateful to have had the opportunity to spend that
    time with Bill and Francis in April. Bill was a very talented engineer and a
    brilliant coil and electrical effects designer. I€™ll always remember the good times we spent together.
    Deepest sympathy goes out to Francis and the family.


  9. Sorry for the loss of your friend and husband Francis.

    Bill was a funny guy and had a love for sparks and history as well as willing to talk to anyone.

    He will be missed.

  10. I will truly miss Bill. He was my friend and mentor. I was so happy when Bill met Francis. I will continue to be there for her.
    Love you Bro…
