Bill grew up in Gand Junction, Colorado. He proudly served his country in the jungles of Vietnam as a Marine. Upon his honorable discharge, he worked construction in Colorado. He moved to Moapa Valley to oversee the construction of the Isola Ranch before starting a career as a "Trash Kop" for Silver State Services/ Republic Services.
Bill lived his life with hard work, integrity, and loyalty. While in Vietnam, his fellow Marines trusted his instincts and perseverance. His sons appreciated the hours of coaching, teaching, and love that he devoted to them. He commanded a room, not by being loud or obnoxious, but with his charisma and sense of humor. He loved to hunt, hike and be in the outdoors. He loved his family more than anything in life.
