Bill was born and raised in Winnipeg and joined the Army Air Corps when he turned 18. Upon returning from WWII, he began farming and started a family, having 9 kids with his wife Mary.
In the seventies, having sold the farm, he worked in real-estate until he retired. He enjoyed fishing and working on cars. He moved to Texas to enjoy the warmer climate, but ended up back in Winnipeg to be close to family.
At his request there will not be a service.
