Bill was married to his wife, Sharon, for 58 wonderful years, and he was a loving grandfather. He was very gregarious and never met a stranger.  He was fun-loving and had a quick wit.  He was a long-time Catonsville resident.  Arriving here with his family in 1952; where he attended St. Mark’s School, Mt. St. Joe, Catonsville High School, and the University of Baltimore.  He spent his entire working career in the Food Service Industry travelling this country and Canada.  He loved his work and the people he met along the way. He was an avid fan of all sports, especially baseball, football and hockey.  He and his wife (Sharon) travelled widely and loved finding new restaurants to share with friends.  He had an amazing sense of humor that many of his friends will remember fondly. Some were recipients of his pranks.   Bill was a kind and generous man, and he was always willing to help a stranger or someone in need.  He had a joyful, vibrant personality. In many ways he was larger than life.  Bill always had a kind encouraging word for everyone, a twinkle in his eye, and a smile on his face.
