He is survived by his sons, William “Pete” and George (Janice) and other children, Ed (Dale), Danny (Teresa), Janyce (Kenny), Robyn, and Mike. With his large family he is survived by his brothers and sisters as well as nieces and nephews. He was especially proud of his grandchildren and great-grandchildren and other special friends.

Bill was born on August 10, 1933 in Charles County, Maryland where he remained as a resident his entire life, except during the time he served in the Army. He retired as a civil servant. He loved serving this community as an Emergency Volunteer Technician (EMT). He was a life member at the Ironsides Volunteer Rescue Squad (IVRS) and the Charles County Mobile Intensive Care Unit (CCMICU).

As an active member of the Nanjemoy Baptist Church, he loved the gospel music and socials, especially the fried oyster feasts and any activity involving fried chicken and desserts. Everyone knew his passion for riding his tractor and his favorite sport, “cutting grass”.
He passed peacefully to the Lord and to join his wife, Elaine and Pocco, his four-legged friend.
