Born on Nov. 3, 1968, in Owosso, Mich., Bill was the son of James and Julia (Oginsky) Wing. He was a 1987 graduate of New Lothrop High School and held various positions before his adventurous, spirit and love for travel brought him to Costa Rica.
Bill was har
d worker and an entrepreneur with many talents including carpentry, sales and coffee farming. He had a big heart and generous spirit. He loved to garden and enjoyed time spent outdoors. He liked fishing, hunting and all types of music (especially Rock and Country). His gregarious personality allowed him to make friends easily and he loved to entertain, especially if he could feed his guests – he was an astounding cook. He had a love for nature and a love for animals, bonding chiefly with his dogs, Honkey and Spike.
