In addition to his wife, Marilyn, Bill leaves behind three daughters, who he loved very much - Amanda Morrison and husband Christopher and their two children, Benjamin and Mary; Allyson Salazar and husband Dan and their two children, Hazel and Amelia; and Sara Cleveland and her three children Jessie, Coleman and Evan.
