HOUSTON – Bisso Marine reports that Capt. William A. “Cappy” Bisso, III, passed away on Saturday, Sept. 24, 2016, at the age of 75.
Cappy attended Ridgewood Preparatory School and the University of Southern Mississippi before joining the family business in 1962. He served in nearly every capacity for Bisso Marine before ascending to the position of Chairman of the Board.
Cappy grew the company’s fleet of vessels to include offshore revolving derrick barges, pipelay barges, dive support vessels, and saturation diving vessels. Through his leadership and vision, Bisso Marine evolved from a local inland salvage and heavy lift company to a full service subsea and offshore midstream infrastructure contractor with operations around the world.
Through his service on the boards of the US Coast Guard Foundation, the National Ocean Industries Association, and the International Salvage Union, Bisso Marine said that Cappy always worked to improve the safety and viability of the industry to which he dedicated his professional life.
