His personality changed customers and employees into lifelong friends. Next to his family, Bill's greatest joy was going to work every day with the people he considered 'the greatest crew in the industry.'"

He is survived his wife Denise. Services are scheduled for 5:30 p.m. on May 1 at St. Gianna Beretta Molla Catholic Church in Northfield.
