He passed while doing a photography workshop in 2003.

Bill Silliker, nationally known wildlife photographer ("The Moose Man", themooseman.com), died yesterday while conducting a photography workshop in Maine's Baxter State Park. He suffered a massive heart attack and all attempts to revive him were unsuccessful.

Exactly one year ago, I had the good fortune to spend three hours with Bill in Baxter while we patiently waited for a bull moose to turn into a position where we could photograph him. That was the only occasion on which I'd spent time with Bill, but in three hours together on a pond edge people can get to know each other.

Bill was a a gentleman and a fine man in all respects, totally dedicated to nature and conservation. He'll be missed by many who knew him and his work. RIP
