Bill met the love of his life, Betty Lou Foust of Lima, Ohio at a skating rink. He married his blue-eyed beauty in 1954. Four loving sons soon followed: Bill Jr, Joseph Phillip, John Wayne and Larry Ray.
Bill was a member of the Carpenter’s Local Union. He remodeled many homes and built commercial properties. To provide for his family, Bill lived and worked in Ohio, Michigan, Florida, and Colorado before settling in Texas. He made a home of forty-six years in Troy, TX where many fond memories were made. Bill retired in 1994 from Cloud Construction in Temple, TX.
The last two years, he and his wife lived in Georgetown to be near his son John, for whom he was grateful for his love and never-ending care.
