    I went to his house today to take him a Christmas
    ham,only to find out that he had pasted from this world
    Sunday.He was ,William[Bill] Dickinson,of Texas
    City,TX.Bill was not only a wonderful friend for many
    years,he was also the finest gunsmiths I have ever
    known,He really loved rifles and built many fantastic
    custom guns,some of
    which he even machined the receivers for,from scratch.
    His passing is not only a great loss for his family,it is also
    a great loss for everyone who knew him,and for everyone
    who loves fine firearms.Please pray for his family...Ken

    This is an example of why gunsmithing is a dieing art. Not many youngsters are going into the trade and the lifelong gunsmiths are passing. We all loose a bit when one passes. My condolences to you and his family and my prayers are sent.
