After retirement, Bill pursued his love of painting and enjoyed a second award-winning career as an artist. He published several books of his paintings and showed work throughout the Southeast. He was most active in the Lake Gaston, Naples and Marco Island art communities. A past President of the Alumni Association, Bill loved all things Virginia Tech, especially football season.
