He was an avid coach of baseball and football throughout his life, a highlight being the coach for the Dartmouth High School Football Team. He was a constant figure at all baseball fields, either coaching or just wanting to see the ball thrown around the infield. Bill was a huge fan of "All Creatures Great and Small", a die hard "Lord of the Rings" expert and had an obsession for the New England Patriots. Bill had a love for all things Christmas and a good home-cooked turkey.

Bill is survived by wife Helene, sons Trevor (Casey), Peter and Stephen (Sarah) as well as his five grandchildren Thomas, Beckham, Cylar, Tessa and Scarlett.
