In 1985 he moved with his wife and two small children to Denver, CO for business. After two years they moved back to Washington, but went to the Eastern Washington area - Chelan.

Most importantly in life, Bill was a family man and a friend. His favorite saying was "to have a friend you must be one." He lived by this daily, which is evident in the outpouring of grief and condolences from everyone who crossed his path.
