Born and raised in central California, Dad loved outdoor activities such as hunting, fishing, scuba diving and motorcycles. In October 1959, Dad married LaPreal Overson, and together they had two children, Rashell and Troy.

In 1971, he and his family bought a cattle ranch and moved to Idaho, where he farmed, ranched, ran heavy equipment and enjoyed all that the Idaho outdoors had to offer.

After retirement, he enjoyed traveling to the Oregon Coast and throughout southern Idaho. He especially enjoyed parking his fifth wheel each summer in Garden Valley on his own personal spot along the Middle Fork of the Payette River on his son's property. It was there that he shared his beautiful singing voice each year at the annual family float trip and karaoke barbecue.

Dad loved spending time with his family and friends. He will be greatly missed.

Bill was preceded in death by his wife, LaPreal, and parents, Willie and Edna. He is survived by daughter Rashell of Cambridge, Idaho; son Troy (Mary) of Eagle, Idaho; sister Sandra (Ken); stepsisters Patti (Wayne) and Amy; five grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.
