They were married on 13 July 1963 in Reno, Nevada. Their journey through life took them to Taipei, Taiwan; Perrin Air Force Base, Texas; Richards-Gebaur Air Force Missouri. Bill and Carlene moved into the home where they would live the next 44 years until her passing, watching their children grow-up and eventually move on to start their own families. Carlene was passionate about service, working as a cook at both Leawood South and Brookridge Country Club for more than 12 years.
