He was additionally loved by many extended family and friends throughout his life.

Bill went to Gonzaga University for two years; eventually graduating from Carroll College in Helena, Mont. in 1956 and later joined the Army for two years out of Fort Hood, Texas. Having grown up on a farm in Conrad, Mont, he continued to farm until around 1977 when he became a CPA and worked as an auditor for the Department of Agriculture. He lived in Moses Lake with his wife, Marilyn, for many years and ran the duplicate bridge club.

Bill was a cherished father, respected grandfather, and was dearly loved by all who knew him. He will be remembered by family and friends for his razor-sharp wit, love of golfing, and passion for playing bridge. A memorial service will be held at a later date.
