A fierce advocate of children and the elderly, Bill has never allowed his hearing loss and visual impairments to diminish his commitment to do good. His dedication and genuine concern for others, especially the elderly and children, inspires others to do the same. He has served as an Assistant Public Defender and is currently the District Child Support Hearing Officer. Together with his staff, State officials, and the local District Attorney's office, he has helped to collect millions of overdue and unpaid dollars in support of children in his parish. An ordained Deacon in the Catholic Diocese of Houma-Thibodaux, Bill has a special passion for nursing homes – visiting local nursing homes weekly, bringing gifts, snacks, and companionship to those living in these facilities.
