He was a machinist at Dupont, Chambersworks for 41 years. But in his spare time he’d head off to the woods, shotgun in hand. He started hunting at the age of 13. And since the 70’s he took a yearly trip to Irvona PA; every year he returned with a deer. At that camp they called him Cuz; the man who did the cooking. He made the best Hobo sandwich: Egg Bacon and cheese all melted together. And Sundays found Bill and his daughters watching the Three Stooges, eating the hobo sandwiched and enjoying the occasional Bloody Mary. He was the grillmaster of his home, always with a beer in hand. And he was known for his witty sayings, though they’re a little too racy to print. He was Honorary Chairman of the K of D men’s club. He followed his father into the membership.
