William (Bill) was born in Hettinger, North Dakota and left us on March 12, 2019. He was 86 years old. Survived by his Wife Maurine and three children, Cheryl, Colleen and Chris.
Bill served in the Korean War and was honorably discharged. He received his bachelor’s degree from Portland State University and received his master’s from the University of Oregon.

Throughout his life, he always had a smile on his face and knew how to make all those around him laugh.
