He is the beloved husband of the late Clara ( nee Rhoads ). Devoted father to Thomas and the late Christina, dear brother of Barbara Akins ( Jim ). Pop to Seamus, Jaelyn and Tommy. Missed by his nieces and nephews.
Bill was a lover of all things Irish, heritage, music and food. He was always seen in an Irish Tweed Jeff cap. An avid Eagles fan, he would spend times with his grandchildren, as family was an important part of Bill's life. He mourned the loss of his beloved furbaby, Harley, who crossed the Rainbow Bridge a few years ago.
