In Kansas City he met Donna, married in 1972 and had three sons. Professionally, for more than 45 years Bill was a master in the art of concrete finishing and was beloved by colleagues and friends alike. An outdoorsman to his core, Bill was never happier than when in nature. It didn’t matter, hunting, fishing, tending his garden- so long as he could spend time outdoors.

He is survived by; sons, Rhon, Shon and Brian; daughter in law, Lorie Ledbetter and son in law, Charles Gabauer; grandsons, Joshua, Emery and Lucian; granddaughter, Sarah, and many nieces and nephews.
