Bill was born and raised in Southern California. He served his country in the U.S. Army during WWII. He built houses and hauled rock with his brother Bob.

Bill was at home in Emery Town, where he grew to love the people and the land. He raised pure-bread Hereford cows for many years. He was a rodeo man and loved to ride his horses and rope. He was always in his western wear, and never went without his Stetson Hat and cowboy boots. To describe Bill would be to say that he was a true Cowboy.

He will be remembered as a true friend that never judged anyone.
