It is with heavy hearts that we announce the
passing of long-time BTO Member William Loubsky.
Bill was called home the morning of April 25
Until the recent convention in
Cleveland, he could always be seen next to his tables in the Dealers’ Hall
selling LGB collectables and the newest and most eye-catching LGB
Through his company,
Jamie’s Collectables, he always donated gifts to the Club for our Convention giveaways
Who could forget the
Santa Fe Convention, when the banquet needed to be kick-started, Bill joined
the Mariachi Band in a rousing rendition of Cielito
It took the excitement in the room up to a whole new level.
Most people knew Bill as a “train guy” and
never realized that he was a true rocket scientist. He traveled the world doing research on rocket
He was also fluent
And if you ever needed an
expert on Beanie Babies or Barbie Dolls, at one time or another Bill was the
guy to go to.
Bill Loubsky was one
unique individual and a friend to so many.
A friend who will truly be missed.
