Passed away February 10, 2013, while traveling with his wife, Pat, and their many "Day Tripping" friends. Bill was born November 23, 1920, in Midway, PA. After attending local schools in that area, he enlisted in the Army Air Corps in 1942 (later to become regular Air Force) and was sent to San Antonio, TX where he received his pilot training. Following graduation, he was sent to Washington State where he was assigned a crew to train in B24 Air Craft. Bill put in twenty-two years in the United States Air Force as pilot and Special Agent for the Air Force Office of Investigation, more commonly known as OSI. This was only the beginning of a long list of assignments, worldwide, to which he was delegated during his military career and of which he was rightfully very proud. After transitioning into civilian life, he spent twenty-two plus years teaching government and electronics at Petaluma High School, which he enjoyed, and where he made many friends. He later taught computer technology to seniors at the Santa Rosa Senior Center. Though it was now time to consider retirement, Bill had far too much ambition and energy, so he purchased some rental properties which he managed throughout the rest of his life. Bill and his wife Pat loved to travel, which is how they met and later married. He was a kind, loving and gentle man who was greatly loved and shall be missed forever. He leaves behind his beloved wife Pat, many family members and friends, and step daughter, Pamela.
