It was at Oakland University that Bill would meet the love of his life and future bride Theresa Beaver, while they were both attending their graduation ceremony.

He spent a lot of time with his children, spoiling his girls and watching his favorite sports teams with his son. He cheered for the Red Wings, Tigers, Lions, Pistons, and especially loved Michigan football. Bill worked for AAA Michigan for many years and was a cherished coworker to all.
