He was recognized as a Founding Father of Minor Hockey in Newfoundland and in 2000 was inducted into the Builder Category of the Hockey NL Hall of Fame. He spent his retirement years enjoying his family, his garden, and vacations with his wife. Bill was an avid outdoorsman and liked nothing better than a hunting/fishing trip or a walk in the woods.
