William “Bill” Kelleher is one of our many residents that are thriving at East Village Place. He and his wife Marie moved here in June of 2014 and he has been thriving ever since. Bill had a play that he and a few friends worked on for years, and he wanted to put it on here at East Village Place. He recruited a few residents and, “The 12 Pound Look” was a huge success. He then went on to do his one man show on “How to Build an Out House”, which had the audience in tears from his jokes and his outstanding wit.
Bill also put on a Watermark University Class in February “Heart and Healthy” talking about his own trials of his many heart attacks and a quadruple bypass he had survived. The class was very informative and included a little of his humor in the mix of it all.
You will always find Bill walking through the building with a genuine smile and always a few jokes up his sleeve. He has made many new friends here at East Village Place. He is always encouraging residents to get more involved in various things. He recently started going to all our exercise programs and gets a few new residents to join in, you can hear them laughing from time to time during the exercise.
Bill is a really great person who has a big heart and is always willing to go the extra mile in any or everything he does. One never knows what he is up to… another play or Watermark University class. He is always thinking of new things to entertain us and you can rest assured he finds Dee our Community Life Director and gets her to get involved with his many ideas. Bill Kelleher definitely thrives here at East Village Place!
