This was not announced at the Reunion. It would have thrown a damper on the event.
Last week William Chapman passed away. I don't have dates. I know he had been in poor health for a long time. My scanning set-up is broken for now or I would have scanned a smiling image.
When Bill smiled my knees went week. He was the swellest Pirate I ever watched. Every role,- Bill Chapman was a joy for the lens. Bill Chapman, I sure did love you.
