Bill Tammeus

Bill Tammeus, a journalist who spent most of his career with The Kansas City Star, is the uncle of Karleton D. B. Fyfe, a passenger on the first plane to hit the World Trade Center on 9/11. Karleton was the son of Bill’s sister Barbara Fyfe and her husband Jim.
Bill’s latest book tells the story of how 9/11 affected his extended family and it explores the question of how some people get drawn into extremism — and what we can do about that. The book, his seventh, is Love, Loss and Endurance: A 9/11 Story of Resilience and Hope in an Age of Anxiety (https://amzn.to/3ltRBn5).
Bill, former president of the National Society of Newspaper Columnists, lives with his wife Marcia in Kansas City. Between them they have six children and eight grandchildren. Both Bill and Marcia are active at Second Presbyterian Church in Kansas City.
