View alumni profile (log in required)
Word has been received of the death of William Lyman Case, Jr., a resident of Naples, FL, who attended Amherst for four years prior to Ohio State Univ., where he received his BA.
He was a marine corps lieutenant during WWII, then returned to Columbus, OH, his hometown. He became a leading realtor in the city in the years before he retired to Naples.
Case’s name may not be known to many members of the Class, but he must have formed a solid tie of affection for the College. This is shown by his generous contributions to the Alumni Fund over the years.
His wife, Josephine, predeceased him. Survivors include two brothers, three children, three stepchildren, three grandchildren, and five great-grandchildren.
