On August 9, 1969, in the Sacred Heart Church, Bill married Carolee Samick, who survives. They were blessed to share 53 years of marriage.

He is also survived by his daughter, Tricia Bauer (Jason) of St. Marys; four sons: Eric Weisner (Jennifer) of St. Marys; Brian Weisner (Sarah) of Lexington Park, MD; Mark Weisner (Kelly) of Davidsonville, MD; and Curtis Weisner (Emily) of St. Marys; 15 grandchildren: Brianna, Jenna, Gabby, Lanie, Ava, Maggie, Bryn, Ethan, Tristan, and Maddie Weisner; Josh, Jack, and Reagan Bauer; and Mason and Mya Floravit; four sisters: Patty Prechtl (Jerry) of St. Marys; Cathy Dippold of Seymour, IN; Margaret Carr of St. Marys; and Marie Weisner of St. Marys; and by his sister-in-law, Junette Weisner of St. Marys.

Bill was a member of the Sacred Heart Church. He was a proud veteran of the United States Army, having served during the Vietnam War and was a Purple Heart Recipient. He loved playing cards and spending time at the Old Schoolhouse Camp.
