Birth: Jan. 5, 1919
Dauphin County
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: Nov. 14, 1996
Rush County
Indiana, USA

Married Kathryn I. Sullivan.

Owned and operated local tavern in Rushville for many, many years.

He and Kathryn had sixteen children: Judy, Joanie, Mike, Alice, Tom, Steve, Becky, Mary, Margaret, Tina, Johan, Amy, Trace, Nanette, Marcia and Anita

Believed to be buried at Calvary Cemetery in Rushville.
Information from the Todd Funeral Home website obituary on his daughter Joan and personal information from me. Growing up in Rushville and with so many children it was hard not to know a Sedneck. I went to school with many of Bill's and Kathryn's children. Years later my brother & I bought Bill's Tavern known for its sliced pork sandwiches.

Memorial will be updated as more information becomes available.
