Bill devoted most of his life to a career in social work, working 37 years at Scott Key Center in Frederick, MD, focusing on the enrichment of life and independence for individuals with special needs. He was a devoted husband and very involved with the lives of all his children and grandchildren. Bill’s faith enabled him to have an enthusiasm for life and a healthy balance of work, family, and relaxation. He was known for sharing humorous stories and had a contagious laugh when someone told him a funny memory or joke. Vacationing at the beach, playing his saxophone on special occasions, planning annual class reunions for the Francis Scott Key Class of 1973, watching sports, especially the Dallas Cowboys were some of his favorite past times. He had a zest for great quality food and restaurants, and an appreciation for the musical and theatrical arts.
