Bill joined the Army at age 17, in 1942, and became the youngest member of Darby’s Rangers, America’s elite fighting force in World War II. He was wounded at one of the most important and costly battles in American military history: the battle of Anzio.
Bill’s postwar experiences included management positions for the National Cash Resister Company (NCR) and ITT-Sheraton World in Boston where he managed hotel computer systems, traveling around the world. When he turned 65, he completed 46 years of working for national corporations. He wound up his professional career with the Adaco Corporation, where he marketed automated procurement systems for the hotel industry.
Bill enjoyed many hobbies including tennis and golf, but especially sailing his Cape Dory around the Boston Harbor. He was also a member of many civic organizations, including Rotary and received an Honorary Life Membership in the Elks at age 33 for work in initiating a crippled children’s program.
A private memorial service will be held at Old Ship Church in Hingham, MA in June.
