Bill was raised in the Hood District and attended the Hood School and the Portage Collegiate Institute.  After completing his education, he started his employment as a farm labourer before becoming a heavy equipment operator. 
Bill married Gwen, daughter of Jim Garnham, on July 26, 1974.
Gwen works as a teacher's aide² and Bill worked in construction and farmed the home farm until illness forced him into early retirement.
Bill was a member of the Poplar Bluff Hand Gun Club.  He had a keen interest in agriculture and maintained an interest in the farm even after it was rented.  He enjoyed the great outdoors, nature and wildlife, hunting and had a great love for animals.  People were a very important part of Bill's life.  He enjoyed socializing and his long telephone conversations.  His greatest joy came from his family, having many children call him "Uncle Bill"¹
Bill is buried in the family plot at Hillside Cemetery.
