Bill attended high school in Lusk, WY, and Gillette, WY.
He was raised on his parent's ranch in northern Niobrara County, WY.
He spent many wonderful summers camping and riding with his grandkids.
He taught his kids many life lessons through 4-H and high school rodeo and pushed them to excel in anything they tried. He loved hazing for his boys and anyone else at the rodeo he could assist to make sure they had a "good shot" at their steer.
The newlyweds moved to Stoneville, SD, where Bill worked for his father.
Then the young couple moved to work at the 2 Rivers Ranch before moving back to Stoneville.
