Bill was raised on the family farm in Fonda, N.Y. and attended the Fonda-Fultonville Central School. Bill was a popular student who excelled in academics and sports. Although he was always friendly and modest, he enjoyed challenging his siblings in a variety of competitions. Bill would invariably win and always responded with a smile and twinkle in his eye. He sure enjoyed spending time with family and friends!
