Bill loved everything outdoors; working in the yard, taking trips cross country, sunsets at Race Point, all of nature and his favorite of all, fishing. He was an avid fisher, and loved nothing more than the fishing trips with his sons which brought him such joy and happiness. Bill enjoyed seeing his family together whether it was simply having dinner together, or getting together with extended family for no reason at all.  He was a loving and caring person, devoted husband, proud father, loving grandfather and a great friend to many. Bill had long retired from the T and for the past years had been working at Milton Hospital. He will be sorely missed by his friends and colleagues.
