We are deeply saddened to inform you of the tragic passing of Bill Corliss, Director of Development for Specialty Electronics, for Bell Specialty.

Bill was riding his bike with 7 other cyclists on Saturday morning near his home in Park City, Utah. A sudden stop by other cyclists led to a collision and ultimately Bill was fatally hit by oncoming traffic.

Greg Shapleigh describes Bill this way: “He was a passionate and dedicated cyclist, and raced at a National level. Like many of us, cycling was the thread that connected all the elements of his life .His first real job was for Schwinn Bicycles. This led to other jobs at Scott, Vetta, Sports Instruments and finally Bell Sports. Most of his close friends were people that he met along the way … Other people who loved riding bikes and who made products for people who loved riding bikes.”

Bill is survived by his wife Deb and his 12 year old son Jordan.

We will be doing what we can to support and comfort his family at this time. We will also advise you of details of services as they are known.
