I met Bill when he hired me to be an EE intern at Harley Davidson when I was an undergrad at UW-Milwaukee. He had my resume and I finally built up the courage to call and went something like: Hi Matt, I have your resume here and was waiting for you to call - when can you come in to meet a few people and start? Lesson learned. I really owe a lot to Bill and I was fortunate enough to be able to tell him. The mentorship and experiments at HD really helped set my career path in electromagnetics, always tied to the basic principles. I have so many memories of our discussions and his non-judgemental love to explain and nurture. He probably didn't know it, but that was really inspiring. Takes less than one hand to count people in my life I feel that way about-includes my mom and dad. I still think of those memories no more or less than learning he stepped into the great beyond - I think about that stuff and him personally often. We're a summation of our memories and yes, that's guiding me to be that type of mentor and friend in my own life. Don't hold back - Bill didn't.

My deepest sympathy. Michelle and family. He sure lived a full life. Now resting in the arms of Jesus. Prayers for all of you.

Words always fall short of conveying the impact and loss of those we love. Mr. Lubitz was a great man and role model to look up to and admire. He touched and influenced more lives than he was aware. He will be missed. He was a man who’s presence naturally commanded respect. I was once told nobody would ever be old enough to call him Bill, he would always be Mr. Lubitz. Rest In Peace and bask in the glory of heaven and God.
