He was Catholic and in his leisure time, he loved water sports, especially skiing and boating. Bill was a people-person and enjoyed spending time with his family and friends.
He was preceded in death by parents, Audie and Louise Motes.
Bill is survived by his wife of 14 years, Luisa P. Motes of Salt Springs, 2 daughters, Tiffany Motes Harrison (C.J.) of Louisville, Co and Billie Motes Adams (Chris) of Seattle, WA, a brother, Tank Motes (Leslie) of Palatka, a sister, Chaaron Barnes of Dowell Town, TN, a grandson, Liam Motes Adams and expecting another grandchild soon. Bill is also survived by several nieces, nephews and other extended family.
