Williams retired at the end of 2001, and had been in sales and sales management for medical device companies since getting out of the service in 1969.

At his last company which was the Guidant Corporation, they manufactured and sold implantable heart pacers and defibrillators and another division sold stents. So he was in the "heart" of the business for a long time, Bair said.
