He was born in Bethlehem, PA., March 10, 1942, a son of the late Milton and Elizabeth (Buehler) Gresho. William was educated in Pennsylvania, attending and graduating from Bethlehem Catholic High School and Lehigh University where he obtained his B.S. in Electrical Engineering. He furthered his education by obtaining his Masters Degree from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. His areas of work expertise were noise reduction and color.
