William served in the US Navy on the CVA 62 Independence during the Vietnam War. He then worked as a communications engineer.  William enjoyed fishing and camping at Shawnee State Park, which led him to follow his lifelong dream of retiring to Bedford.  He was an easy-going family man, with a great personality, who gave his all to his family.  William was an extremely proud grandpa, who looked forward to supporting and celebrating his grandchildren’s accomplishments.
