He attended Braddock High School where he met Cathy, his life-long soul mate and they were married in 1957. Their three children, Denna, Chris, and Sean came into their life and by 1965, their family was complete.

Bill worked for AT&T in the Pittsburgh area, and in 1970, he made the decision to transfer and move his family to Anaheim, CA. He retired at age 55, and when his children were all successfully settled with their own families, he and Cathy moved to Lake Wildwood to spend their retirement.
