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.

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.
