It wasn’t so much the size of the man, but the presence he had. If Bill was in a room he was a commanding figure; a committed leader. To most it looked as though he owned businesses selling lifts and conveyor belts, but, truth be told, the companies owned him and his real product was people. Bill helped employees find their true potential. Spare time found him in the woods either hunting everything from deer to bear or finding solace at his Pennsylvania retreat. He loved his rods (GTO, Suburban, El Camino) and he tapped his feet to the sounds of Country Western. But more than anything he enjoyed partying with family and friends.
Bill would meet a girl named Pam at a party at Temple University’s Ambler Campus. He claimed his name was Omar; much more exotic than Bill. Though they were both there with someone else, by the end of the night the two students would find themselves well on their way to nuptials. Their 51 year marriage was blessed by two children, Robert and Cristine Hutchinson and her husband, John; two granddaughters: Danielle and Althea and a great-grandson, Giovanni. He is survived by his sister, Marsha.
