He studied biology at the College of Santa Fe in Santa Fe, New Mexico and maintained a lifelong interest in nature. He took great pleasure in back yard bird watching, gardening, and stargazing. Having played several sports growing up, he remained an avid sports fan, and especially enjoyed watching the Patriots and Red Sox with friends and family. Bill was a long-time employee of Coca-Cola of Northern New England in Sandwich, Massachusetts and a member of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters Local 59. He was a friend of Bill and Bob for twenty-three years. He was also a proud member of the Democratic Party and a supporter of Amnesty International.
