Bill was raised and educated in Wilmington; he attended Wilmington Public Schools, played youth sports and graduated from Shawsheen Tech High School in Billerica with the Class of 1985.

Bill’s hard work, dedication and knowledge of his profession was evident in everything he did; Bill worked his way through the ranks and was currently a Supervisor for the Company at the time of his passing.

He was kind and friendly towards everyone he met and loved his family and friends unconditionally. Bill’s sudden passing will leave a huge void in the lives of those he touched; he will forever be remembered, loved and missed by all.
