Bill attended Holy Cross for Kindergarten then St. Pius X until he graduated in 1971. He went on to attend Creighton Prep, graduating in 1975.
Bill went on to St. John’s University, attended Creighton University, graduating from Loyola Marymount University. Bill lived for a short while in California, then moved back to Omaha shortly after his oldest daughter, Katherine was born. In the following years Katy was joined by sisters, Jennifer, Elizabeth and Patricia. His four daughters were the pride and joy of his life.
Bill enjoyed golfing, Creighton Basketball, and the College World Series, really any sporting event. He enjoyed these events with his many friends from the various points in his life.
In the most recent years Bill’s time was spent working on the Restore the Glory Project at Holy Name. His passion and energy were thrown into the project as long as his health allowed. He was thrilled to be able to attend the Groundbreaking Ceremony and know that this project was coming to fruition
