He loved the outdoors and was an avid gardener, hunter and fisherman. Bill enjoyed making his own lures, jewelry and gardening. During his time in the military, Bill realized that he loved cooking. Over the years, he has made many amazing meals for his family and friends. Happiest memories were made watching the Green Bay Packers with his brothers and teaching many friends and family to fish.
