Throughout his career, Bill was committed to community service. He helped found the South Side American Little League, later becoming President, and he managed teams long after his kids were done playing. He drove for FISH of Skaneateles, taking patients unable to drive to appointments, and he served on the board of the Skaneateles Public Library.
Bill enjoyed lively discussion and conversation with family, friends and almost anyone! The love and pride for his four grandchildren, Kyle (Paola), Lauren, Mackenzie and Natalie, was second to none.
Bill was pre-deceased by his wife of 52 years, Natalie “Archie” Barry Bell, and by his brothers, Walter and Tom. He leaves behind his children, Peter and his wife Deborah Rogers, daughter Kathie, and Chris and his wife Linda.
There will be a Celebration of Bill’s Life on Saturday, January 27th, at 2PM at The Hilltop Restaurant in Skaneateles.
Donations in his name may be made to the VA Hospital in Syracuse, who provided excellent care for him over the past five years, or a charity of your choice.
