Bill, or "Papa" to many, was a kind and generous man who loved helping people. He was a former member of the Bangor Jaycees and Brewer Kiwanis. He was outgoing and friendly and loved meeting new people, both locally and in his children's communities. He was called a friend by many. He will be especially missed by his golfing buddies. He loved playing golf and traveling to see family. He was a U.S. Army veteran serving with the 59th Engineer Company at Fort Ord, CA as well as a brief tour in Munich, Germany.
