He attended New York University before joining the United States Navy and serving during WW II. He graduated from NYU as an electrical engineer and retired from E-Systems after 30 years of service.

Bill was a man of great faith whose true passion was music. He was a long time member of the St. Monica Choir and the Vocal Majority Barbershop Chorus. He was also a fourth degree member of the Knights of Columbus.

He is survived by his daughters: Kathleen Weatherford and husband David, Lisa McCoy and husband, Charles and grandchildren, Timothy and Katherine Wicker, Brittany, Amber and Jason McCoy, Mandi Griffin, Robert, William, Bradley and Jack Weatherford and 9 great grandchildren.
