Date of Birth: January 9, 1963
Department: Institutional Trading
Position: Partner, Senior Vice President of Institutional Equity Sales
Will and I met on a blind date that was set up by a Cantor friend in 1987, and we were married in 1991. At our rehearsal dinner, no truer words were ever spoken when Will raised his glass, made a toast to me and said: “Tomorrow I marry my best friend.” Will was my best friend and partner, the father of our precious children, and we miss him terribly.
He will always be remembered as a special person with an expansive heart and high sense of morality. We’ll miss his big smile so bright, his laughter and crafty wit, his inexhaustible generosity and his selfless caring for those around him. His dedication to his work and his dreams now inspires us and challenges all of us to be the best that we can be. Someone once wrote:
“That person is a success who has lived well, laughed often and loved much; who has gained the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; who has earned the appreciation of honest critics; who appreciates beauty and finds the best in others; who leaves the world a bit better, whether by children, a garden patch in the back yard or a charitable gift to help others; who knows that even one life has breathed easier because he has lived. This is to have succeeded in life.”
Will truly succeeded in his life. Will’s gifts and living example will always be here to guide us and encourage us. We are forever thankful for his love and caring, and we feel lucky and honored to have had the time with him that we did. His legacy of love will live on in our hearts forever.
