    Sorry to have to pass this on–just read about it on the HoboyResearch forum:

    Dear Friends and Colleagues,

    I am sorry to inform you that Bill Waterhouse has died this morning in a
    hospital in Florence after a five day fight against a heart, liver and
    kidney failure.

    He has been lively and enthusiastic until the very end and he was
    surrounded by the love of his entire family who joined him a few days

    Very sad to hear this news; I had no idea he’d been ill. What a giant in the bassoon world – he’ll certainly be missed. My condolences to his family. Sincerely, Jim

    I am so very sorry to hear about Mr. Waterhouse. I met him at the Glickman-Popkin Basson Camp when he was a guest artist. The bassoon world has lost yet another founding father.

    My sympathies to the family.
