Bill taught Business Education at Bristol High School for over 35 years, retiring in 2005.  He coached basketball at Bristol High School and also coached basketball and field hockey for Council Rock High School.

Many wonderful times were shared with friends and family at their Brigantine, NJ shore home.  During the winter, he escaped to Naples, FL for sunshine and warmth.  Bill was always ready for another vacation, especially cruising around the world
