Bill spent the majority of his career at Congleton Lumber Co. where, for thirty-two years he become the region’s foremost authority on construction building materials. He was well known by everyone in the construction business and was always willing to share his expertise. In 2001 he was lured away from Congleton to become a project manager for Padgett Construction where he was able to expand his skills and aid them in becoming a leader in custom home building. Following his retirement in 2017, he became immersed in the leadership of his neighborhood association, Traditions at Parks Edge, and was it’s president for ten years. Bill’s circle of friends through his professional and civic activities was enormous and he earned the friendship and respect from all who knew him.
His most significant legacy is his two sons who he mentored to share his limitless zest and talent for troubleshooting, problem solving, building or repairing anything that one could do with their own two hands. They enjoyed and grew together from their work on cars, boating, fishing, gardening and cooking. The highest points of his later life were spent with his grandson Ben on their trips to Florida .
A celebration of Life will be held at Clark Legacy Center in Brannon Crossing on Sunday December 4 from 2:00 to 4:00 pm.
