Coleman, III passed away on November 29, 2020 after an eight- month battle with pancreatic cancer.  He was the husband of Claudia Coleman with whom he shared over 36 years of marriage.  Bill was an Air Force “brat”, born in Guam, lived around the world and was the oldest of eight children of Col William T. and Elizabeth Coleman.

Bill’s love of the Air Force continued with an appointment to the Air Force Academy where he graduated with a degree in computer science in 1971.  He went on to earn his master’s degree in computer science and computer engineering from Stanford University.  He also holds an honorary doctorate from the University of Colorado.

Beginning his Airforce career, Bill was chief of satellite operations in the Office of the Secretary.  Upon leaving the Air Force, the tech world of Silicon Valley was a perfect match for his interest in computer systems and software.  He joined VisiCorp where he was director of product development during development of the first spreadsheet, VisiCalc.  At Sun Microsystems, he co-founded Sun Federal, founded Sun Professional Services; and lead development of the industry-leading Solaris Operating System.
