He also owned his own photography business that he took great pride in. He had a love of fishing and gardening. He was a dear and loving father, grandfather, and friend. He is survived by his five sons, William Jr., Gerald, Robert, Michael (Judy) and Thomas; his daughter, Patricia; grandchildren, Vanessa, Bryan (Michele), and Kyle; great-grandchildren, Sierra (Josh), Tyler, Gavin, and Joshua; and his great-great-grandson Micah.
