He made a career in the Machine Tool and Die Sales Industry often being the top salesman in the country. He was devoted to his family and to his beloved Indians, Browns, Cavs and Buckeyes. He also loved being involved with Tallmadge Little League Softball and playing cards with his friends, especially Euchre.

Bill is survived by the love of his life and wife of 55 years, Linda; daughters, Monica (Doug) Robinson, Julie (Jeff) Williamson, and April (Damyan) Birch, 10 grandchildren; 5 great-grandchildren; and many other loving family and friends.

Linda, Monica, Julie and April: So sad to hear the news of Bill passing. Nicki kept us informed of his recent health struggles. We had the opportunity to know Bill and Linda in the Tallmadge youth sports programs and had an even better opportunity as April and Nicki became friends via softball and moved on to share their Freshman year at Miami as roommates. Bill befriended our youngest son Brian on the road trips for Tallmadge Little league. Bill bought a few 50-50 tickets for Brian on those trips. Bill was a good man, most evident by his four precious girls. Rest In Peace Bill.

May your family be comforted at this difficult time. Bill will certainly be missed.
