Bill was loved so dearly and brought so much happiness to the many hearts he touched. He was always kind, caring and understanding towards the people he loved. He was a blessing and God's gift to everyone he came across and brought so much joy to us.

He graduated high school from Moeller High and continued his education at Eastern Kentucky University, Xavier University and University of Cincinnati, where he received his PhD.

He loved Cincinnati sports, the stock market and FOX News. He was a professor of labor relations for 30+ years at Northern Kentucky University.
