Bill served his country for four years in the United States Air Force until being honorably discharged in 1961. Soon after, he began his radio career as a news announcer and program director. Over the years, his distinctive voice has been heard at many stations throughout Ohio, including WJER, WTUZ, and WHBC in Canton. He was also a talented percussionist and enjoyed music and performing live, a talent he passed on to his two grandsons.
Bill leaves behind one daughter, Rachel (Chris) Bolek of Dover; three grandchildren, Andrew, Alexis, and Aaron Bolek; sisters, Shirley (Herm) Frank of Marion, Ohio, Mary Kay Mercer and Carol Corbi both of Cary, N.C.; brother, Tom (Becky) Mercer of Cleveland.
