We were given life to live to the fullest, nothing more, nothing less.’

Bill was an extremely hardworking man. He dedicated 35 years of his life working for Air Products & Chemical. Bill lived in Illinois for many years. An avid outdoorsman, he enjoyed teaching his children the ins and outs of hunting and fishing. When around his grandchildren he became a fun loving, joke filled Grandpa/Granpy/Baloo that would keep them laughing and smiling until their cheeks hurt. Once he moved to Florida,14 years ago, his new hobby became golf. He was blessed with one last round of 18 holes the morning before he passed away.
