Will died Sept. 24, 2009, in his longtime home of Denver, Colo.

Coming from Andover, where he was active in track, dramatics, and the glee club, he majored in politics at Princeton and was a member of the Westminster Society and Elm Club. He roomed with Ray Kelly, Bill Jamison, and Al Bingham. After three years in the Army with service in Europe as a captain, he moved to Billings, Mont., with a small company that purchased oil and gas leases. Several years later he moved to Denver after a career as an independent oil operator.

Active in the Presbyterian Church, Will traveled widely. In each of the class yearbooks, he wrote about the depth of the friendships he acquired while at Princeton. He returned to seven major reunions, the last being his 50th.

Will is survived by a niece, five nephews, and 26 godchildren. He was buried in Shreveport, La., the town in which he grew up.
