Bill proudly served as an AE-2 (Aviation Electrician) in Patrol Squadron 42 of the U.S. Navy from 1953-1957 after graduating from Chardon High School. He was a lifetime member of The Fraternal Order of Eagles (F.O.E). Bill is remembered as an avid outdoorsman who loved spending time in the woods and on the water. He was considered a true woodsman that enjoyed camping, hunting, shooting, bowhunting, archery tournaments, and photographing the landscape where he felt most at home. He was decorated in awards for each of these passions including several “exceptionally meritorious catch awards”, archery awards, newspaper articles, etc. There was not a body of water that he didn’t drop a line in and enjoyed outings on his boat the Billfish. His most recent interest was setting up trail cameras to continue his wildlife watching enjoyment. Throughout his lifetime other interests included a respect for classic cars, a fond appreciation for golfing, and motorcycling. Many loved and admired Bill and would describe him as unique in his ways and a man that truly lived life on his own terms.

Final resting place will be with his family in Fort Myers, Florida.

    I’m sad to learn passing of Bill. He’s one of my father’s great and close friends for very long time. Bill came to visit my ailing father at nursing home often to chat and comfort my father in his final days. Bill did came to my father’s funeral and I’m glad he did. Now, they can reunited together in afterlife. Rest in Peace, Bill.
