Bill was an avid pool player (the best in our opinion) and a lifetime Harley rider. He got his first motorcycle at 16. Bill never knew a stranger and enjoyed giving everyone a hard time. His favorite language was profanity and he had colorful nicknames for everyone. He loved classic cars and classic rock. His favorite, all time car, was his dad’s red Ferrari. His favorite pastime was in the boat with his family. He was an animal lover to the fullest. Bill drank coffee like “no one’s business”. He enjoyed bartending, most recently at the Brass Rail and the Atlas in the Kansas City/Excelsior Springs area. He worked for Ryder at the Ford plant in Claycomo, Mo. Bill was a free spirit and lived his life to the fullest on his own terms. He will be missed dearly by his children, family and numerous friends.
