William worked as a California Iron Worker for most of his adult life. He enjoyed roaring down the road on his Harley with Cathy on back. He would sit and watch NASCAR, NFL, WWE, and boxing. You could find him playing Xbox while listening to Blues or Classic Rock. He loved to go fishing on the boat. Willie lived his life the way he wanted, no one could tell him what to do. Willie definitely lived a great life.
