“Father Bill’s” first assignment was as Rector of St. Luke’s Episcopal Church, San Antonio for several years. Then on to St. Helena’s Episcopal Church in Boerne, Texas, where he served for 14 years as Rector. His wife Judith served as Organist and Choir Director. They made a very happy career choice together.
After Retiring in 1998, he moved to Port Aransas, Texas. He was Interim Vicar at Trinity by the Sea in Port Aransas for 4 years with his wife by his side.
He loved the gulf coast, boating, fishing and many other outdoor activities. He especially enjoyed entertaining family and friends at the coastal home on the canal in Island Moorings.
