He enrolled in Washington State University in Pullman, Washington, and excelled in the subject of Agronomy and he was a standout on the WSU track team!

He bought a farm in Othello in 1967 and became a cattle rancher. He also grew alfalfa, corn, and other crops. He was a true outdoor man who taught kids to fish and learn how to make duck calls. Bill was a member of the Catholic Church, the Lion’s Club, a proud supporter of 4H and the PBS Nature channel. He was kind, patient and soft spoken. He will be dearly missed by many friends and relatives.
