Bill was a faithful member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, being baptized on 12 July 1958. He served in many capacities on the Stake, Ward, and Branch levels within the Church. But, his favorite responsibility was a faithful Home Teacher where he visited many members of the Church in their homes looking after their needs and sharing a Gospel message each month. In his younger days, he spent many evenings and weekends helping members of the Church move into and out of their residences. As one of the earliest members of the Dayton, Ohio, Stake he assisted with construction projects in many of the buildings currently in use by the Church in this area. Although a little
direct, at times, he had a very loving personality and will be missed by all who knew him. Visitation will be held on
