As a dog lover, Bill was the proud owner of 6 dogs in his lifetime. His latest furry companion, Buddy, is heartbroken at his loss.
Bills greatest legacy and joy was his beautiful wife Virginia and his family. His love story with Virginia is a tale of two young parents who persevered through the loss of their family business and built a lifetime of love that will endure in our hearts and memories.
When we think of him, which we will often do, it will always be with a smile. His personality filled any room he was in. We will miss you. Rest in peace Bill...
