He also dedicated years of service to the Boy Scouts. After moving to Florida in 1977, he continued his commitment to public service with the South Martin County Volunteer Fire Department. Quite the entrepreneur and true jack-of-all-trades, he owned and operated Sailing By Jupiter! and Bill's Sharpening Service. In 1994, he and his son co-founded Barricade International. Bill will be fondly remembered as a loving family man who enjoyed dancing, especially the Jitterbug at family weddings. he took pleasure in fishing, sailing, boating, snorkeling, travelling, woodworking, and socializing with his many friends, and "two Bartlett fingers" of Scotch on ice. Bill enjoyed his final days surrounded by family members and kept his keen sense of humor and sharp wit until the very end. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests contributions be made to Busch Wildlife Sanctuary, 2500 Jupiter Park Drive, Jupiter, FL 33458 or the charity of your choice.
