His career spanned 35 years with Western Union, eventually retiring as Vice President of Communications. Upon retirement, he and Ann built a home on Lookout Mountain, doing much of the clearing of land and construction themselves. He and Ann were both active members of the community, with Bill holding membership in Alhambra Shriners and The Freemasons. He served 10 years as Secretary for the Fraternal Order of Eagles where he led numerous fundraising events benefiting The Boehm Birth Defect Center.

His wicked sense of humor brought laughter and joy to any room. He was kind to a fault and adored by many. He loved his family, a good glass of Chardonnay, lively conversation, a faithful dog, a good read, but his greatest love was Ann. Their love story began at age 14, and their devotion to one another is truly unmatched.
