Bill was the proud father of four boys, one daughter, grandfather of nine grandsons and five granddaughters. He spent over 40 years in the retail industry, mainly in the grocery business.He enjoyed skiing, fly fishing and the outdoors. Nothing, however seemed to please him more than having his family together and enjoying each others' company. He cherished the time spent at their property near Scofield. The Annual Bill and Doris family reunion and Christmas gatherings will not be the same without him. Bill adored his grandchildren. He and Nita rarely missed a grandchild's ball game; cheering, encouraging and consoling them at every opportunity whenever necessary.
