Bill was a lover of golf and a big fan of sports, especially the Patriots and the Red Sox. In his early days he was quite the tennis player. He also enjoyed darts.

Bill was a history buff and loved the Civil War. He also enjoyed spending time with his family.

Although 6’4”, Bill was the most gentle and kind man around. He was a wonderful father and a dedicated husband, brother, and friend. Bill was truly a big teddy bear. He was patient, loving, and beloved by all.

Paula, Arianna, Andrea, & Athena, I am so sorry to hear of Bill's passing, it was always a pleasure spending our limited times together, but times I will never forget. Especially fond memories of playing golf in Naples, at Hole in the Wall, with the 4 Bills, Bill, his dad, Bill Brown and myself, it was tough to keep the score card straight. You are all in my thoughts and prayers, be strong and know he will be watching over you.
