Bill was born on December 17th, 1950, in Cambridge Ma. He grew up in Cambridge and Wilmington MA. Where he met his beautiful wife, Carrol.

Bill and Carrol lived in NH for many years as well as in Ontario Canada, which you have more than likely heard many a story.

Bill started his flooring career when he was just 19 and continued with his flooring business, Rytech, for 48years. When he retired, he had started to work for the NH tolls, where you would find him with a smile and a crazy hat, and you could count on Santa during December.

Bill lived by the values he held most important, “Be willing to take a chance, travel see the world, eat the food you love, love who you want with all your heart, and don’t waste this life waiting for the perfect moment, life is too short.”

Bill loved to take a ride on his motorcycle, would never pass up a game of cribbage or backgammon, he took great pleasure serving cotton candy and popcorn at all the family, especially the kids, at the Ryan parties, he enjoyed cooking as well as going to all his favorite restaurants.

Our family is grateful to know that Bill is with his love and is at peace. He will be missed dearly.
