Bill was a very loving, optimistic, selfless, and patient husband and father. His two greatest accomplishments were his two sons. He was always there to give them his attention, time and advice. He involved himself in the activities that each boy was involved in at any given time. He and Kim loved to travel. They traveled frequently and were fortunate to hit many destinations on each other’s bucket list. Bill loved sports and played golf with his son, father, brother and friends. He was an avid reader.
Bill’s love and generosity reflected the heart that Jesus gave him when he accepted him as his Lord and Savior on Father’s Day 2018. He was devoted to his daily walk with Christ, and sharing his love of the gospel. He will be greatly missed by his family and friends.
