I don't know how many of you guys know this, but Bill Fleming died last October here in Corvallis, Montana. Bill was a super person, a good friend and had a wealth of knowledge about apples, wheat and everything in between. He was the farm manager at the Montana State University experimental station in Corvallis. From what I understand, Bill had a blood disease, had only a few days to live and took his own life.
If I had a question about a hay bailer or the depth to plant winter wheat or what was causing the funny shaped leaves on my apples I turned to Bill and got the answer in an instant. His death is a big loss.
