William was a self-taught Tool & Die specialist.  William loved to go bowling and play around of golf.  He loved to travel with the people that he loved the most.   If you were to ask William what his greatest achievements in life were, he would say Working for the same employer, HPL, for 40 years, falling in love not once but twice in a lifetime, but nothing would surpass the greatest achievement of all raising his son William.
