Bill was born and raised in Krydor, SK. At the age of 19, he was conscripted into the Canadian Army on December 17, 1943 and served as a Gunner and was stationed in Britain. After the war, he served with the Occupational Forces in Belgium, Holland, Germany and France. He returned to Canada and received an honourable discharge on June 6, 1946. Upon his return, he eventually moved to Prince Albert, SK where he spent most of his career as a Parts Manager. Later on, he moved to Allan, SK then to Warner, AB where he worked for Madge Equipment in Milk River, AB before finishing his career at Roydale International in Milk River, AB.
Upon retirement in 1989, he spent a great deal of his time fishing and bowling until the age of 91. It wasn’t until one year later that he discontinued his real passion – golf – at the incredible age of 92.
