Bill was a one-of-a-kind spirit and everyone who knew him, knew that. He could walk into a room and light it up with his contagious smile.

He loved spending time with his family and friends and nobody was a stranger to him, Bill was known for his live of his animals and was cherished by his “Athena” and beloved “Buttercup”. He enjoyed working on antique tractors and anything associated with them. He always went out of his way to make sure others were ok and was admired for many of his actions. He was the best son, brother, uncle and friend that anyone could ask for. He was the pure definition of a “big hearted” man!
