We are very sad to report Bill Krumm’s passing. He was in town visiting the CA/NV Speedo Sectionals being held in Carlsbad and passed in his hotel room last night.  All San Diego Imperial teams probably have had some interaction with Bill.  He was the Sports Development Consultant for the Western Zone as part of the USA Swimming staff.  I had the privilege of working with Bill on multiple occasions in my short tenure as General Chair of San Diego Imperial Swimming.  He was a kind and generous man who was well-liked by everyone he met.  Many of us at the sectionals meet were shocked to hear of his passing since we were just speaking with him yesterday.  His work with USA Swimming has helped all of our teams become better organizations for all of our athletes. His passion and leadership will be greatly missed.
