He loved watching every sport out there, especially baseball and football. He was a huge fan of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Notre Dame, where he also ushered for home games. He loved going to the casino, hunting, fishing, swimming in the pool with family and friends, and chocolate covered peanuts.

Bill graduated from LaPorte High School in 1977. He worked at Carpenter Company for 35 years where he managed the carpet cushion division.

He is proceeded in death by his parents, brothers, Joe, Bob, Jim, Gregg, and Glenn, his son Jeremiah, and his grandson, Malcolm.

He is survived by his wife Cheryl Lynn of 32 years, children, Tristin (James) Tubbs and Garrett Pauff (Stacie), grandchildren Gabriel, Prudence, Lennon, and Charlotte (and one on the way), sisters, Terri, Janet and Deb, and a brother Geoff.
