A Note from Will Bundy Jr.

“Thank you for any effort you can make to participate in my father’s services.”

A Note from NNOA Historian

This message about the “Passing of our most Productive and Legendary NNOA Family Member, Dr. Will Bundy,” is most devastating, I have just opened up my e-mail after finishing my weekly radio show, “Old Skool Sunday with Dr. Rick Wright.” Life is so “precious,” I am now in “tears,” remembering, when I first met “Will,” in the 1980’s when I wrote a story about him in our NNOA Newsletter. William Bundy, Jr., “Stay Strong, we love you and your family so very much during this time of extreme lost!”

God Bless the Family!
Roosevelt “Rick” Wright, Jr., Ph.D., CAPT., USNR(ret)
