He volunteered with the Tri-Village Lions Club and was always ready to help promote his kids' school and community activities. His ALS diagnosis made it necessary for him to give up many of his great joystraveling, playing tennis and attending Blue Jackets gamesbut he rarely let the disease diminish his sense of humor or his compassion for others. Over the past few months, Bill received numerous cards, calls, emails, meals and visits from family and friends near and far. These were precious to him and meant more than he was sometimes able to express. On his behalf, thank you all so very much. Cremation services were arranged through SCHOEDINGER MIDTOWN CHAPEL.
