2020, Ron Hering Awards

“I co-create a world of peace through service and listening.”

Bill is very active in the recovery community. He’s been on the board of directors and board of trustees at his home group. During the pandemic, he started a meeting of Alcoholics Anonymous, bringing the message of recovery to addicts and alcoholics who were just entering treatment.  He helped inspire and set up Zoom meetings of Alcoholics Anonymous in the tri-state area at the beginning of the first COVID-19 lockdown. Lower Bucks hospital tests all patients for COVID-19 before admitting them, so Bill took the risk of going in person.  He’s a front line worker who repeatedly put himself in harm’s way, this resulted in getting COVID and then later going back to work.

Grew up in Northeast Philadelphia, Robotics Technician for Amazon, married, one daughter, new grandfather. Went through in October 2018. Member LKS.
