He completed his medical training in San Francisco where he met his beloved Rosie. Rosie and Bill were wed in Pittsburgh in 1954. The couple eventually settled in Ukiah in 1959. Ukiah would become the place they called home for more than 5 decades. It was here that Bill established a medical practice in the field of pediatrics, raised his loving family with wife Rosie, actively served the community as a school board member and teacher, forged lifelong friendships with colleagues and members of the community, grew pistachios, and advocated and practiced healthful living. His steady and consistent manner permeated all aspects of his life. His sense of fairness and honesty were remarkable. His presence will be dearly missed by all those that knew and loved him.
