Thomas, after a long fight to recover from a brain injury that resulted from a bicycle accident. Bill retired from Cox Media where he was an Advertising and Print Manager. He was a long-time member of St. John Church in Covington, where he went to grade school and was a member of the guitar group for many years.

He loved spending time with friends and family, especially over a burger and a beer. He was an animal lover and rescued several dogs throughout his lifetime. He was a music man and spent a lot of time playing guitar. He spent countless hours cycling or just coasting and chatting on his bike.
