A long time jumper / judge and supporter of ski jumping has taken his last jump! Bill served in the 10th Mountain Division during WWII with Torger Tokle. His nickname “Weasel” came from the fact that he was the driver of a tracked military vehicle called the Weasel. He was one of my dad’s best friends and over the years spent many times with our family. – Art Tokle, Jr.
