Army, working as a chief X-Ray technician. He was a CPL

After retiring from Frigidaire with 28 years of loyal service, he continued working at General Motors as a proud IUE-CWA Union member for another 14 years. Bill was an

adventurous man with a love of all things outdoors including fishing, camping, gardening, and traveling. Some of his favorite times were spent with his family, especially teaching his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren how to fish. When you couldn't find Bill working in his garden at home, you could find him fishing at his vacation home on Lake Norris, Tennessee. He was a devoted family man who loved spending time with close family. Many nights were spent playing cards and laughing with his siblings. Bill's work ethic was unmatched, he would always be the first to help you, and loved learning new trades all the time. Bill was the foundation that his family was built on and the man who always showed up. Though he may have been a man of few words he always found a way to make you feel loved. Along with his parents, he is preceded in death by his siblings, Ruby Alene Roddy, Mary Barkley, Betty Fox, and James Roddy.
