Bill was brought up in Southwest Harbor, graduated from Pemetic High School and became a proud alumni. He enlisted in the US Army and served his country as a Combat Veteran in the European Theatre during WWII.
Bill was a graduate of the University of Maine Orono, with a degree in business administration.
He was a licensed real estate broker for 54 years. He owned Great Northeast Realty, worked for Cashman Associates and Dawson Bradford until his retirement at age 80.
Bill loved sports; especially local basketball and Yankee and Notre Dame games. He was a competitive runner, which began at the University of Maine and continued by competing in local road races, well into his 80’s.
This Irishman was a people person who enjoyed stopping by for a cup of tea and conversation.

Bill was predeceased by two daughters, Patricia Kennard and Rosemary Lawlor; a sister, Rosemary and a brother, Joseph.

Bill, who had been so active, fought a long hard battle with Parkinson’s disease. His caregivers made it possible for him to stay home, especially Emily Sharpe, who he referred to as “Em”.
