In 1993 the family moved to Shores of Calvert in Calvert County Maryland where they are still residents.

Bill could often be found at the community river front where he loved to visit with his many friends and neighbors in "the shores". He enjoyed fishing, golfing, and shared a love for the Washington Capitals with his family. A devoted husband and father he always put his family first. There was nothing he loved more than spending time with his wife, children, and grandchildren as well as their close friends Debbie and Charlie Bolton.
