William was a very hard worker beginning at a young age. He bought his first pizza place at the age of 17 only selling the restaurant because he joined the Army. While serving our country he was stationed in Germany. After his service he came back to Illinois and opened his second pizza place. He later graduated from the Police Academy and served on the Lyons Police Force for over 19 years. After serving Chicago as a Police Office ran a bar and his third and final pizza place. He loved fishing, and hunting. Above all, he cherished his family and the time he spent with them. He will be greatly missed.
