He was born on April 9, 1930, in Woodward County, Okla., and was the oldest of four children. He was a graduate of Sheridan High School, retired from the United States Air Force, retired from the Arkansas State Forestry Commission, and a retired truck driver. He drove trucks all over the country and log trucks and gravel trucks locally. He also was a single father to four of his children and a member of Lacey United Methodist Church.

Bill enjoyed eating, collecting rocks, hauling dirt, and spending time with his family. He will always be remembered for his work ethic, generosity, and his sarcastic sense of humor. Those who knew him best called him Daddy, Papaw, Brother, Dirtdobber, and Unk and will always have a funny story to tell about him and his pranks.
