Family and friends were an important part of Bill’s life, and he loved spending quality time with each of them. He would never turn down a chance to chat with anyone, anywhere.
In recent years, Bill enjoyed taking Donna for rides in their old stomping grounds in Glenville, Myrtle, and Northwood to keep up with what was happening. He loved updating his daughters, son-in-law’s, grandsons, and all his friends on what was going on in these communities. Bill took Donna for often lunches at Grandma’s Kitchen and treasured his friends and chats with his Grandma’s Kitchen friends. He was always up to go out for meals with family and friends.
Bill could be found relaxing at home, scratching in his word find books, and figuring out puzzles with Donna, playing cards and games with grandkids and friends, and chatting with neighbors.
