For 40 years, Bill was the owner of Basement Repair Specialist, Inc, and was the "go-to handyman guy" for family and friends. He was a Veteran of the US Army.  An avid and excellent bowler and a pretty good recreational golfer, he developed many strong friendships over the years through leagues, tournaments and the "19th hole". Over time, Bill enjoyed memberships with the Agonis Club, Elks, Moose, NAUS and Oakhurst Country Club. Friends may call at JERRY SPEARS FUNERAL HOME, 2693 W.
