Bill was born, raised, and educated in Quincy, attending Quincy high and graduating with the class of 1957 and then attending Wentworth Institute of Technology.

While serving on the police department Bill would work nights and weekends doing plumbing and electrical work. Bill retired from the police department and stayed active with his business, William’s Plumbing and Electric that stayed in business up until just a few months ago.

Bill would very rarely be found sitting still. He stayed active and was always working multiple jobs and completing odd jobs on the side and at his own home. When Bill wasn’t working, he enjoyed spending time with his wife at their lake house in Maine where they would snowmobile, ride atv’s and just take in the nature. Bill was also a member of the Weymouth-Braintree Elks, the American Legion and the Holbrook Sportsmen's Club. Bill was truly a gift to all who knew him and will be forever missed.
