He married Patricia Stukenberg on August 27, 1965. Bill loved motorcycles and had his own motorcycle shop in the 1980’s selling parts and building custom bikes. He also loved traveling to Daytona Bike Week and taking many trips with his wife. He was someone who liked to stay busy and he could frequently be found working in his garage or reaching for one of his many pairs of reading glasses. He was a member of the Masonic Lodge which was very important to him. But, the most important thing in Bill’s life was his family. He loved taking the family out to eat and spending time with them as much as he could. His favorite thing was being an involved father and grandfather.
