We were very sorry to receive news from Neil Bottos that Bill Willocks sadly passed away on 12 March aged 73.

Bill had been in poor health for a while but it was still a big shock to hear the news.

Bill spent his ANZ career in I.T. including stints in London and New York. He managed the International Services Project team at 303 Collins street when I came to Melbourne in 1989 and was a very popular leader.

Earlier In London he was tasked with the unpopular challenge of installing the Method 1 system to a team who enjoyed a more free form of systems design. I know he enjoyed the pubs and restaurants in the City at that time.

Des Shady said That’s very sad news. I first worked with Bill in New York early 1980’s. He loved big cars and I remember he purchased a well used Cadillac ? for about a grand - just outside bank policy.

In recent years we caught up with Bill at our Anzroc Golf Days and Xmas lunch and our annual I.T. get together around Xmas time at Toto's Pizza house.

Bill will be missed by his many ANZ friends.

We pass on our deep condolences to Sue and her family. R.I.P. Bill.

Funeral details will be added when known.
