Bill retired from Conwed Plastics after 38 years of service. Throughout his life, he was an avid sports fan, especially of the Yankees. He could often be found on the softball field, basketball court, or playing a round of golf. He shared his knowledge of sports with countless young athletes through coaching youth leagues and umpiring/referring for all ages. His dedication will be missed by many.
