Bill was in the Navy at age 17, owned three businesses, and traveled the US as a pipeline land man. Most recently making his home in California, he lived in nearly every state. He loved to take drives through town or country, enjoyed flying and motorcycles in earlier years, loved his childhood home of Calvin, and was a great storyteller.

He will be missed.
