Bill was born on October 22nd, 1957, in Philadelphia, PA where he attended William Penn Charter School. He then began his career as a huckster before founding Top of the Hill Market & Cafe which grew from a loved roadside market.

Bill possessed a generous spirit and is well-known to many for giving them their first chance. Bill wasn't only a business owner, he was a man who believed in treating employees and customers as family.
