On October 25, 1958 Bill married Joan Van Steenbergh, celebrating 61 years of love and friendship. They moved to Kennebunk, Me in 1969 when Bill transferred to New England Telephone.

Joan, I'm so sorry about your loss of "His Nibs". The two of you saw each other through some horrendously hard times, and I know there's a huge hole in your heart. I also know how strong you are, and I pray that you will find peace. Love, Liz Baker
