Bill was an Eagle Scout who received his Bachelor's, Master's and Juris Doctorate degrees from the University of Florida where he served as President of the Florida Blue Key. During the Korean War, Bill served as a research psychologist.
Bill practiced law in Tallahassee for 38 years, including terms as a small claims judge and as a federal magistrate. He loved people and viewed his work as a practical way to show the love of Jesus to others.
