In 1969, Father Bill was awarded a master's degree in music from the Catholic University of America.

He served as pastor in multiple parishes throughout the diocese. His final assignment was as pastor of Our Lady of the Valley parish in Middleburgh and as sacramental minister to Our Lady of Fatima parish in Delanson. Father Bill also served as chaplain to the Ressurection Sisters in Castleton and to the Little Sisters of the Poor in Latham. From 1989 to 1991, he served as a military chaplain in the Air Force and served in the Persian Gulf during the conflict. Father Bill retired in April 2014 and was a member of the Knights of Columbus.
