Bill was born on September 4, 1948 in Painesville, Ohio. His life was marked by a concern for his friends, family, and country that he carried with him long after his service in the Navy. During his three tours of duty in Vietnam, Bill served as a Machinery Repairman Third Class aboard the USS Newport News (CA-148). After his service, Bill obtained a B.S. in Industrial Technology from CSU Long Beach and a Certificate in Manufacturing Engineering from UCLA. He would go on to apply these distinctions in a long career in manufacturing and product engineering, working for companies such as Honeywell International, Emerson Network Power, and Hughes Aircraft Company.
Bill is survived by his brother, Bob; his sister, Sheri; his son, Troy; and his dog, Raynor. Funeral arrangements will be held on Friday, July 14 at 10:00am at the National Memorial Cemetery of Arizona.
