He was a member of Leechburg United Methodist Church. Bill was a lifelong outdoorsman who enjoyed hunting.

In retirement, Bill served as a volunteer for Habitat for Humanity, and he was a dedicated donor to the American Red Cross, earning recognition for reaching the mark of 22 gallons of blood donated.
