Bill is survived by his wife of 65 years, Anne Cox; their four children, Cyndi Racine, John Cox, Melissa Turrisi, and Caroline Lowe; as well as their ten grandchildren and great-grandson. Bill was born in Gainesville, GA, before moving to Orlando, FL where he spent his teen years as a proud member of the high school fraternity Omega Xi. While in college he was drafted for the Korean War in 1953 where he served as a corporal in the U.S. Army. Before being stationed to New York, he married Anne Haller on June 5, 1954. After his active service, Bill returned to school on the G.I. Bill to finish his degree in business administration with a minor in industrial engineering at the University of Florida. Bill began his career at Cape Canaveral, FL, working for Pan Am on the Gemini program creating defense missiles for the space race.

That love was most evident in his home, Fleetwood, a ten acre farm established in 1730 in Jeffersonton, VA. There he and his bird dogs and horses, enjoyed participating in field trials and hunting in the area. Bill was also an active member of many historical and community clubs including the Sons of Confederate Veterans, Sons of the Revolution, and his local Ruritan society and a lifetime member of the NRA.
