Bill graduated from Van Buren High School in 1953, and married Dorothy Waldrop on January 14, 1955. They attended Calvary Baptist Church. Bill was one of the founding members of the Van Buren Volunteer Fire Department, and was a 50 year member of the Masonic Lodge. 

Bill retired after a 30 year career with UPS, he started as a driver and ended his career in management. He was the first driver in the state of Indiana certified to pull triple trailers. After his retirement, Bill was a partner in Specialized Pallet Builders before later taking ownership.
