Bill moved to the Scotia area at the age of five and attended local schools. He continued his education at the Fort Schuyler College, where he received his bachelor's degree in Engineering. After his schooling, he traveled the world as a Merchant Marine.  Once he married, he left his days of world travel behind to raise a family and worked as a Nuclear Engineer for various places and most recent being Bechtel Plant Machinery. 

His hobbies included anything with tinkering or building. He used his skills to create his childhood home into one where he raised his family.
