Bill was an avid sports fan, but he truly loved watching NASCAR. If he wasn't spending his time watching sports, he would be in the kitchen cooking. Bill was a true family man and absolutely loved spending his time with his family. He will be dearly missed by all that knew him.

Along with his parents, Bill is preceded by his baby sister Ginger Stover, who had the reddest hair and freckles, which Bill absolutely adored. He is survived by his wife, Carole Day Doherty; sons, Robert Edward Doherty, and Mark Patrick Doherty and his wife Kristi Doherty; grandchildren, John Teague, James Teague, Victoria Teague; Sister, Cathi Doherty, and brother Pete Doherty and his wife Kathleen Doherty. He is also survived by numerous nieces, nephews, and extended family.
