Rosann and Nicholas: our sincere condolences for Bill’s passing. Nigel and I recall such an amazing weekend with you both and Jan in Virginia a few years ago. We have fond memories of visiting Arlington cemetery and all the famous Washington monuments. It was a glorious weekend and Bill was in good form, as was everyone. Nigel helped Bill bbq and worked the “smoker” for ages. Friends came round, we had Rosann’s great corn dish, and the weather glorious. Bill and Nigel exchanged motorcycle stories. This is how Bill will be remembered; smiling, content and with a beer in his hand surrounded by family and friends. May he rest in peace. Cris & Nigel

Very sad to hear about Bill passing. My sincere condolences to Rosann, their son and family. I will never forget a couple of occasions Bill and I connected, that shows his big heart, kindness and happy demeanour. Late 90s in Bill and Rosann’s house during a gathering with friends, Bill showed me his precious bicycle hidden in the garden shed. He talked with pride and determination about working and restoring it one day. On another occasion Bill invited me to go see a Redskins game with him at FedEx field. As this was my first time in a live game, it was a fantastic event for me. Bill was the perfect host, and got me introduced to the whole Redskins experience that day. Will never forget that. Rest in Peace my friend. Elias

Dear Rosann and Nicolas ~ I only met Bill a couple of times and, to me he was a lovely gentle guy with a great sense of humour and a love of family and bikes. If it wasn’t for Bill I would never have gone to the Bikers Ace Café that time with Jan. I remember that my brother would have been jealous of us going there as he shared Bill’s passion for bikes, especially old ones ! My abiding memory, however, was us all getting stuck in Jan’s lift in Putney where we all tried to remain calm and sensible even though we were really a little drunk and panicked ! I’m pretty sure Bill was the calmest. Sending our love and thoughts from North Yorkshire xxx Kerry, Andy, Iain & Stephen

My Father Thomas loved you with all his heart Uncle Bill and he prayed that you ultimately came to Christ along your path. God Speed, Bill... keep the boat docked for us. We All Love You.
Planning ahead is prudent. Call us now.

Rosann, my heartfelt sympathy to you and Nicholas. It was a great loss in such a difficult time. I was deeply saddened with the news of Bill passing. I was so lucky to have known and worked with Bill for 17 years up until his retirement. We both started on the Job Corps Program back in 2000, mine was two months after his. First with PBDewberry and later with Parsons, all together we had so many surveys and travels across the country from East coast to West coast, including Hawaii, Alaska and Puerto Rico. More than just a co-worker we became good friends. We shared some up and down moments in life. He attended my mother funeral in 2004. I attended his father funeral in 2007. I had lunch with Bill, his mother and Rosann when his mother moved from Florida to Virginia. In the office we often go for lunch together with some others, many times at the Vietnamese Soup Pho 75 in Rosslyn or Tachibana Sushi bar in McLean, our favorites. Off work, I had the privilege to invite him to my housewarming party and myself was invited to quite a few Christmas parties at Bill home with his family and circle of his high school friends. I vividly remember at one Christmas party I drank so much that I fell asleep on the couch and ended up spending a cozy night at his house. Those good old days are engraved in my memory. Till We Meet Again, rest in peace Bill Armour, my buddy.

Bill was a pillar at the PBDewberry and then Parsons office here in Arlington. He and Constantin held court there along the windows and kept the survey teams steady with wry humor and professionalism. He was deeply respected by all of us who worked and traveled with him. He was generous with his knowledge and yet did not suffer fools. We were much diminished by his departure. I’m proud to have known him but very saddened by his early departure. Deepest condolences.
