As my youngest son, Chris, said "He was truly a good character". That was Bill. He served his country, worked hard, raised a beautiful family, contributed to his hometown through Little League and always had time for a joke or a laugh. Your work on earth is over now Bill, may you rest in peace with the Angels!
