Bill was an avid gardener who had a green thumb. He took great pleasure in the outdoors, cultivating a variety of fruits, vegetables, and flowers. When he wasn’t in the garden, you could often find him tinkering around on his tractor, tending to his chickens, or relaxing out on the patio admiring the hummingbirds. He loved the outdoors but there was nothing he loved more than his grandchildren. Being able to share his love, knowledge, and laughs with them brought him tremendous happiness.
