Bill and his wife Val have lived in Arizona since 1999 and Sun Lakes since 2014.  They usually travel 3-4 months during the summer, to escape the heat.  Their son Matt is deceased; daughter Amy and son-in-law Chris live in Scottsdale.  Bill and Val were both born in Flint, Michigan, the birthplace of General Motors; they met in grade school and have been married for 51 years...
 
Bill was practically born into the automobile business.  The house he lived in when first born was demolished to make a parking lot for Buick employees.
 
Bill worked for a non-profit corporation in Flint most of his career.  Their mission was to provide educational, recreational and social programs for their members.  Sun Lakes Rotary was a natural fit, a chance to continue serving.
 
Bill is the current Vice President, delivers the Splash, volunteers on the Golf Tournament, pancake breakfast, AWIM, the foundation committee and has delivered dictionaries.
 
Bill is proud to be a Rotarian because of their work with the Chandler Unified School District, specifically AWIM.  Bill has worked with 1st, 5th, 6th and 7th grade students.
 
In the future, Bill hopes to recruit new Rotary members from nearby corporations.
