He enjoyed running, being physically fit, working around the beautiful house they built in the Poconos, and always helping people. Bill had great devotion to his faith and family. Bill’s love of his life was his wife Lorraine, who he married in 1958, and remained so for the rest of his life.
Bill was an extremely caring and warm man. He lived his life in an exemplary manor, and he loved unconditionally.
He is survived by his wife Lorraine, son Steve and his wife Amy, 4 grandchildren – Liam. Kyle, Owen & Drew, and two brothers Martin and Michael.
