Bill loves staying active, he was eligible for "Honorary" status in March of 1977, however he refuses to be placed on the honorary roll.
Bill is the oldest living member of the Donora Fire Company.
Bill has just celebrated his 90th birthday this year in January, 2007.
Whenever any member of the fire company needs an answer to a question about the equipment we have, everyone knows to ask Bill. He is the most familiar with all of our pieces of old equipment.
Bill had purchased his own 1947 American LaFrance engine and still maintains it today.
