Bill served in the United States Navy from 1961 to 1965.   He was also an avid fox hunter. He spent many nights in the surrounding areas listening to his dogs run fox and coyotes.  If you knew him at all, you would understand his love of fox hunting. He judged many field trials and enjoyed all aspects of the sport. In addition, he loved telling stories over and over again and we all considered him a master of everything. He always reminded us that his family came from good stock and we will carry his love for us in our hearts forever.
