[Saw this obituary in today's e-version of the Roanoke Times and the name
sounded familiar. Of course, with the lack of emphasis on serving readers,
there wasn't a version on line on roanoke.com, but I did find it through
the funeral home.]

William Bruce Wingo, of Patrick County, Virginia, formerly of Chesterfield,
Virginia, died June 2, 2020. Bruce was immersed in historical research and
military/rail infrastructure. He supported many historical societies, such
as the Southern and N&W railway historians and the Jamestown and Virginia
Historical Societies. In 1986, Norfolk Southern Corporation named him its
Resident Vice President-Government Relations for Virginia. Instrumental in
the creation of the High Bridge and New River Trail State Parks, he also
secured many historic rail properties, including stations, depots, the
Staunton River Battlefield Park and Natural Tunnel State Park. He advanced
several transportation museums, including the Virginia Museum of
Transportation in Roanoke and the Richmond Railroad Museum.
