Bill was a well-loved member of the Innerkip community and a lifelong member and leader in Innerkip Presbyterian Church. He spent 25 years passionately supporting the Nicaragua Mission of Hope. On his yearly visits to Nicaragua, he shared God's love with everyone he met. Bill spent his entire life working and managing the family farm.
