Bill grew up in Red Bank, NJ and attended Red Bank Catholic High School and Monmouth College (now Monmouth University).

After eight years of dating, Bill and Peggy married in the summer of 1966.

Bill had a wicked sense of humor and a style all his own. Whether he was mowing the lawn, playing sports with his children or attending a cocktail party, Bill was always in khakis, a button down shirt, and loafers with no socks. Bill loved a good joke and busting chops. He was the maestro of one-liners. If you were on the receiving end, you knew he liked you. With the arrival of grandchildren, Bill embraced his role as “Poppy” and enjoyed teaching them the value of a good sense of humor.
