    Bill was all of these things and more! He was a sincere friend to the members of the Credit Union and went out of his way to help members make circumstances better for their families. As manager the Rochester Monroe County Employees FCU for 40 years, he served the community well and in many capacities.

    He was also a great sportsman and family man, genuinely loving his family and particularly his grandchildren. May He Rest In Peace; we all miss him.
