Bill proudly served in the US Air Force. Bill was a lifelong member of the Williamson Masonic Lodge No. 309, F.&A.M.. His love of the beach lead him to regularly travel to Ocean City, NJ. He loved the casinos and the boardwalk. He loved scratch-offs, listening to music, the Philadelphia Phillies, his 1958 Ford Fairlane Convertible, and of course, his family and friends. His ability to tease people made everyone laugh out loud.
