Sad news Marion and thank you for bringing this to our attention.

Willi was a hell of a nice guy and I remember looking at, and learning from his displays at the MAX and SOS.

My condolences go out to all that knew him, but especially Chris Mason as I know what good friends they were.

RIP Kamerad!

Hello all - I have added this link from another ongoing thread.

Sorry to hear of this. Years ago I had to fly back from Germany to Walter Reed for some medical treatment. Knowing that I was stuck in D.C. and bored, Willi graciously invited me over and we spent a couple hours going through some of his eye-popping collection. We'd only known each other indirectly through some mutual friends and I was but a poor Heer collector on a soldier's budget, but Willi was kind and trusting enough to have me over and show me some really valuable items. He was a class act.
