Bill served in the US Navy and was engaged in many military campaigns throughout the world. He performed heroically during the attack on Pearl Harbor as he helped to save the battle ship Nevada. He retired from the Navy as a Chief Warrant Officer after 20 years of service to his country. Bill was a 32nd degree Mason and a lifetime member of Masonic Lodge #835. He was baptized as a member of the LDS Church March 4th, 1995 and later served as Secretary to the High Priest Group in his Ward. For a number of years he served as a faithful temple patron.
