Born on January 23, 1930 to the late Ross and Anna Seese, of Westerville. Veteran of the US Air Force Bill served during the Korean Conflict.  Bill made a living working construction at Kirkham Building Systems for over 45 years. Bill was widely known for his craftsmanship and woodworking skills and his love of classic cars.  Over his life he owned a 1965 Ford Falcon Wagon, a 1934 Lincoln Zephyr, and his beloved 1947 Cub Cadet Farmall tractor.  Bill loved classic cars so much that he joined the Delaware Vintage Car Club to be around other people who shared his passion.  While Bill enjoyed wood working and old cars the true love of his life was his wife of 67 years, Mary Lou and his 5 children who will miss him dearly.

Bill was preceded in death by his parents, his three brothers, Ross, Harold, and Bob Seese and his sister, Dorothy Ellen.
