C. William Zadel

West Point, 1965

Be Thou At Peace

Posted by LTC Joseph F Passanante Jr on September 28, 2011:

Having graduated 6 years after Bill at West Point, I sadly never got to see him play in person except on TV (ARMY_NAVY). However I had the great pleasure of hearing his name mentioned many times as I listened to Army Football on the radio as a high school student

Year later I met and worked with Bill at Abbott Laboratories and had the pleasure to compete with him in a knock down, stand up, drag down basketball game. He not only was a fierce competitor but a great business leader as well.

I lost track of him as we went our separate ways in business, but I will always remember Bill as a great guy and one of my childhood heroes.
