Bill was born in Kansas City, MO on July 28, 1939. He graduated from Glennon High School in 1957. Bill was a proud United States veteran, serving in the Air Force from 1958 to 1963. He worked as an electrician for over 50 years through the IBEW Local 124 and spent most of his time at the Proctor and Gamble plant in Kansas City, Kansas. Bill was an avid sportsman and enjoyed bowling, fishing, golfing, and hunting. He enjoyed coaching and watching his sons play sports as they grew up, and later attending his grandkids’ events and activities. He was a founding member of the adoration chapel at St. Agnes Catholic Church in Roeland Park, Kansas and faith played a large role in his life.

Bill’s family is eternally grateful to the caregivers at Addington Place of Prairie Village and at Ascend Hospice for all of their love and support. Bill prayed the rosary daily, always asking for help and guidance for all of his friends and family. Please consider offering one for him.
