He would enjoy reminiscing about raising chickens and birds with his father and also was an accomplished gardener, ordering new and rare seeds from catalogs to grow. He was a true Homesteader as he could build, fix and grow anything. He was best remembered as one of the “Good Ole Boys” of the area being well known and loved by many.

Bill is the devoted father of Robert Norman and his wife, Tanisha of Greenville, N.Y. and Scott Norman of Sparrowbush, N.Y. Loving grandfather of Naomi, Gavin and Riley. Former husband of Nancy Kraus of Sparrowbush, N.Y. Companion of Debbie Kohler.
