Biographical Comments
Captain Bill enjoyed being a fire fighter; he ‘lived for going to work’. Bill gave everything of himself to others, on and off the job; he was there to help anyone in need. Kindness, generous, sense of humour and most especially ‘love of life’ were a few traits that describe Bill. After 30 years on the job, after retirement, he truly missed the guys. Bill is missed by many.
