He was a member and former deacon of the Slippery Rock Alliance Church.

He was a musician, videographer, gardener and Biblical researcher, and he had many other interests. Bill was a good and kind man, with a humble and gentle spirit. He was a friend to all people and animals. He never complained about his health challenges, and he put others’ needs above his own. He lived frugally but gave generously in every way. Bill loved the Lord, and it was his hope that everyone would seek a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
