"In high tide or in low tide I'll be by your side."
  • 69 years old
  • Born on October 2, 1948 in Cambridge, Massachusetts, United States.
  • Passed away on February 20, 2018 in Port Charlotte, Florida, United States.

Bill was born in Cambridge, Massachusetts, graduating from Rockland High School. He retired from the Hanover School Department as a maintenance worker in 1998. He and Patti moved to Florida to begin their life together and were married July 2000.

He enjoyed working as the maintenance supervisor for Punta Gorda Airport until his retirement in 2010.  Bill enjoyed his retirement tinkering in his garage (man cave), working on home improvement projects and refurbishing cars. He was always willing to lend a hand to friends and family. He was self-described as a ‘Jack of all trades, master of none’. Bill’s unique sense of humor was something to be appreciated. He loved spending time with his family/grandchildren by the pool cooking on the grill. Holidays & birthdays were some of his favorite times.
One of his favorite past times was watching YouTube videos of crazy Russian drivers. He also enjoyed watching videos of the history of flight and anything having to do with flying and space exploration, although he had a fear of flying. Bill was a long standing member of NRA and enjoyed target shooting.

Bill will be deeply missed by his wife Patti, her children John & Heather, their grandchildren Jeffrey, Riley and Ambrynn, and his sister Marylou. He loved his 4 yorkie babies and considered them his children.

There will be no service at this time. As an expression of sympathy memorial contributions may be made to the Florida Yorkie Rescue http://www.floridayorkierescue.com/Donations.html 

God looked around his garden
And found an empty space;
He then looked down upon this earth
And saw your tired face.
He put His arms around you
And lifted you to rest;
God's garden must be beautiful,
He only takes the best.
He knew you were in pain,
He knew you might never
Get well upon this earth again.
He saw the road was getting rough
And the hills were hard to climb,
so He closed your weary eyelids
and whispered 'Peace be thine.'
It broke our hearts to lose you,
But you never went alone,
For part of us went with you
The day God called you home

I only recently met Bill and Patti for the first time at their delightful home where they hosted a birthday party for their beautiful grand daughter Ambryn. Only once, yet Bill left a lasting impression. His creative touch in every nook and cranny, no ordinary house, but a magical paradise. Bill warmly greeted and welcomed all the guests, one by one, encouraging everyone to feel at home, to look around to enjoy his amazing handiwork. Only once, yet he made me feel like we were old friends. Ill never forget that. Bill never knew a stranger.

My fondest memory of Bill was the love he had for his family. I may not have known him for a long time but in the years that I have known him it was clear through his words and actions. He was always there to help and support his family and friends. He will be missed by many!

I visited Patti and Bill many times in their beautiful home in Florida. What I will always remember about Bill is the funny songs he would sing. How creative he was with is words and tunes. Bill was always full of love and happiness. Words cannot express how much you will be missed. RIP Bill.
