Bill served over nine and a half years in the U.S. Navy mostly on a destroyer in electronics. Upon being honorably discharged he went to work at IBM, retiring in 1985 as a senior analyst. After retirement Bill could be found volunteering at various places and enjoyed helping people.
Bill loved The Lord and his family. Wherever Bill’s employment took him across the country, he found a good Christian church and church family that became a part of his life. He became friends with two special people from Charlotte, North Carolina, Herb and Louise Thomas.
