Bill and Marilyn farmed for many years south and west of Seymour. Bill particularly enjoyed his cattle and sorting cattle with his sons, brothers, and nephews were some of his memorable moments.
Bill was a member of the Seymour American Legion and past member of the Masons. He also served on the Wayne County ASCS Committee.

Preceding Bill in death were his parents, daughter Martha Renee, infant twin brother Bobbie and brothers Milo and Harold.
The many "old time" stories, friendly card games, and family pranks will be some of the treasured memories shared for years to come with Bill's family.
