Bill was a loving and devoted husband and father. He was a member of the Knights of Columbus and a proud Army Veteran who served in the Vietnam War. He enjoyed 45 wonderful years on Diamond Lake. He will be dearly missed but his family is thankful he is now at peace.
Cremation will take place with a memorial service to take place at a later date.
