Bill was an adventure seeker and an amazing story teller. He loved to tell everyone all about his life and he had an experience to relate about everything. He worked hard and played harder. He spent his life having adventures. Bill adored his grandkids and spent his retirement years spending as much time with them as he could. He was proud of his family; more so than anything else he ever made. He wasn't interested in material things and tried to live a simple life.
