Bill was born and raised in North East Philadelphia. After high school, he enlisted in the U.S. Navy where he spent 14 years serving aboard 3 aircraft carriers as part of the Carrier Air Group. In 1992, he was honorably discharged and decided to focus on his education. Bill attended Rowan University in New Jersey where he graduated with a degree in Environmental Biology. However, after some soul searching, he decided on another path and attended the Lutheran Seminary in Philadelphia. He graduated in 2000 and took the call to St. Matthias Lutheran Church in Clearwater, where he spent 14 years serving his community. In 2017, he took another call to St. Mark Village and immediately felt warmth and love from his new community. Bill enjoys playing hockey and spending time with his wife of 26 years, Stacy and their 3 children Victoria, Billy, and Shawn.
