Bill enlisted in the US Air Force and served during the Korean War Conflict. Rising to the rank of Sergeant, Bill often reminisced about his time stationed in the Tundra as a member of the Air Rescue Team, protecting Greenland, Labrador and the surrounding area he finished his four-year enlistment serving at the Air Force Base in Mitchell Field, NY, where he was proud to have been appointed a member of the Honor Guard.

A Roman Catholic, Bill was a parishioner of St. Rose Church, Belmar and most recently Holy Innocents Church, Neptune. Always a devoted and beloved son, brother, father and husband, Bill considered his family to be his most valuable treasure, often referring to his children as his Gold.
