Wanted everyone to know. Mr. Williams passed away 6/29/2023. I only met Mr. Williams a few times. But he sure made a great cage trap. I have no other information then that. His passing will be posted on the IN Trappers Association site as well. RIP Mr. William’s

Always recommended his traps to any who ask what's a good one.
Nice man to deal with.
RIP

I haven't spoken to Bill in a few years. He was always good to visit with when we traveled the convention circuit years ago. Bill used to enjoy flying the ultra light planes for a while. Rip ole friend.

I really hate to hear this. We bought hundreds of his traps when I went to work at USDA 21 years ago. Most of those traps are still going after 100s of coon and thousands of possums have been in them. Great guy to do business with.

Hate to read this. He and his products will be greatly missed.

Sad to hear. Always was a great guy to visit with and always had an extra chair or the back of his trailer to sit on. All but two of my box traps are his.
