Bill has served on the boards of Penfield Children's Center, including as chairperson, and the Milwaukee Public Library Foundation. A Milwaukee County resident since 1969, he and his wife Linda have three grown children and currently reside in Milwaukee’s Historic Third Ward. In retirement, he enjoys daily bike rides, all the while listening to WUWM, and yearly winter escapes to Florida.
