After his retirement from there he worked at ABC Siteworks.
Bill loved to fly. He built numerous airplanes and enjoyed flying. His two most remembered flights were flying dressed as Santa Claus and dropping out toys to the kids at the Christmas Tree Farm and flying through the handles of the Longaberger Basket. He also enjoyed building model airplanes and riding his Harley Davidson motorcycle.
