“You could find Bill his happiest getting in the wind on his Harley alongside fellow family and friend riders or fishing for carp late into the night. Bill was a DIY natural and loved to tinker in his shed and was always up to get a wrench out to help anyone in need. Early on Bill was an avid motor cross rider and later enjoyed catching the races at Eldora. Bill’s genuine heart, blue eyes and charming smile will be missed by all including his beloved pound pup rescue, Sassy”.
