Bill was a 1960 graduate of Burlington High School and served in the Army National Guard. He was in Retail Sales throughout his career.

He was of Protestant faith. He enjoyed golfing and the camaraderie of good friends, bowling, his yard, being with his grandchildren, reading and his or your dog. He was an avid Iowa Hawkeye fan, a faithful Denver Bronco fan and he tolerated his wife’s love of the Cubs. He reminisced often about his extraordinary childhood on South 13th Street. And although an only child, his memories of his large extended family that gathered every Sunday at his grandparents’ home were frequently recalled with stories and love.
