Bill graduated from Clinton High School in 1954. After graduation, he moved to Little Rock where he attended UAMS to study radiology. He completed his residency at Baptist Hospital in Little Rock and graduated. This is where he met his beloved wife and they married on July 1st of 1956. He became a radiology tech and lab tech from 1956 to 1966. He then obtained his nursing home administration license in 1966. He became an administrator of a hospital and nursing home in Waldron, Arkansas. He moved his family to Paragould in 1971 where he worked in nursing homes in the northeast Arkansas area. He retired from Greene Acres Nursing Home in 1997.

In his spare time, he enjoyed horseback riding and attending the chuck wagon races. Bill also enjoyed training bird dogs, judging and participating in bird dog field trials.

Bill led a full and wonderful life and now he continues on the journey of all journeys to walk the streets of gold with our Lord and Savior. We take comfort in knowing he will be free from his worldly body and will be whole once more.
