Bill married the love of his life, Joyce Brennan, on May 5, 1962, in Dearborn, Michigan.   He will be remembered as a loving, jokester that loved making people laugh. If you needed a smile, Bill would gladly give you his. Bill had a giving spirit and loved to teach and help others whenever they needed his expertise.  Bill was a proud commercial carpenter (steeplejack) who loved all the jobs way up high. He loved to go camping, hunting and fishing with his family.
