He had a paramount role at the University of Central Florida, as a professor, mentor, and advocate to many students and athletes. A leader in his church, he had a tremendous impact on the lives of the youth. He was a beacon of light to guide us all on a life well lived. Every day, he was an example of how to live to the fullest, love deeply, forgive without question, offer grace with no limit, and serve selflessly. There’s no doubt his legacy will continue for years to come.

Throughout his career he had the occasion to work with many different people and organizations to bring impactful opportunities and changes to the area. Over the years he purposed to create a great life for this family. Bill had several passions- his family, his church, youth soccer and the University of Central Florida. In each of these passions he had a tremendous impact on every person he met.
