He was an Army Veteran of World War II and retired from Indiana Bell (AT&T) after 33 years. He was a lifelong member of the Communications Workers of America.
Bill's passions were flying and sailing. He was once featured in the Indianapolis newspapers for building his own airplane, which he flew. He also built numerous sailboats, sailing them in the waters of Indiana and Florida. In his later years he built radio-controlled airplanes and flew them with his friends and brother.
He is survived by his children, Mark (Vicki) Endicott, Debra Endicott, Phillip Endicott and Carla (Robert) Disman; his brother Ralph (Lois) Cingo of Austin, Texas; 14 grandchildren; 14 great-grandchildren; and one great-great-grandchild.
He was preceded in death by his parents, his loving wife Britta (Coffman) Cingo and daughter Theresa Endicott.
