William was a cousin of Amy Farrah Fowler.

Amy said that William died when he was ground to death in a pepper factory accident. This tragedy was described in "The Holographic Excitation" episode when Amy and Sheldon were deciding on their Halloween couple's costumes and Sheldon suggested they go as salt and pepper shakers. Amy also commented that salt makes her retain water.
