Bill was a devoted husband, daddy, granddaddy, great granddaddy, and loyal friend. In his younger years he enjoyed coaching baseball and in his older years was satisfied to watch ball games on TV. Also, loved Western movies. Up until a short time ago Bill kept his yard mowed, planted flowers and shrubs, and was a very active senior citizen. Most of all he loved his family, especially his grandchildren, who were a joy in his life. His presence in our family circled will certainly be missed.
