In recent years, he has weathered the loss of both his wife and a daughter. He and his youngest daughter Jenny live in the small community of Bridgetown, Ohio.
Bill has been a giver all his life...as a veteran serving his country and as a firefighter for 28 years. He has faithfully volunteered at the Cincinnati Fire Museum for 35 years.
He is now in need of help himself.
On January 11, 2018, Bill had just left his home to drive to the store when he was hit broadside by another vehicle doing over 70 mph. His car rolled several times, became airborne, and struck a house in a violent impact. Bill had to be extricated from the car.
To add insult to injury, the vehicle that hit him was stolen and was being driven by a man who was fleeing the police, likely impaired, and a felon convicted of multiple offenses.
Bill was in a coma for a week and though his daughter and friends are beginning to see encouraging signs of improvement, he faces many months of rehabilitation and medical treatment for his serious injuries before he can go home.
This GoFundMe page is an attempt to help him with his many medical bills and with some changes that will need to be made to his home to make it possible for his return.

He's been a giver all his life; now he needs our help.
