Bill’s family is planning a public Mass of Christian Burial but due to the pandemic, it will be announced once the restrictions have been lifted. In the meantime, his family asks that anyone who knew him hold their memories close until we can celebrate his life all together. Flowers will be graciously accepted once we announce services, but donations can be directed to St. Mary’s Catholic Church, 8961 Main Street, Honeoye, NY 14471. Burial will be in Mt. Morris Cemetery with military honors. To leave the family an online condolence, please visit
