William was a beloved husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle, and friend to many and anyone who crossed paths with. He was an adoring husband to Jennifer Lee, his sweetheart for 25 sentimental years. William was a very proud father to three remarkable children and would praise them for their great achievements. He was a successful businessman and machinist and will always be remembered as a wonderful provider for his family and friends. We will always remember his most contagious smile. He was a grade A grill master and outdoor adventure man. William was always busy being a perfectionist with cars and tinker toys. He was a wonderful role model while also being a teacher to many about hard work and the beautiful and rewarding gifts of life. We could always count on him to be generous to any and all who needed a helping hand. If you ever needed him he was always a call away for advice or to put a smile on your face with his dirty dad jokes. You always knew when Will was home, the speakers were on full blast with upbeat tunes. William was an active and proud member of A.A., family man, and faithful friend. He was the positive life at any party.
