Bill moved to Akron in 1986 and retired from Conway Trucking, where he earned the distinction of traveling over 3 million miles accident-free in a big rig. He was a former member of the VFW and loved his Harley’s, riding back home to North Carolina and participating in many poker runs. He was kind-hearted and loved his family, and he will be missed.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his brother-in-law, Paul, and canine traveling buddy, Candy. He is survived by his wife, Cathy; children, Billy (Dara), Renee (Steve) and Michael; grandchildren, Samantha, Madison, Raymond and Scotty (Addie); great-grandchildren, Kyler, Kerri and Raylynn; and many other loving relatives and friends.
