Bill was a lifelong farmer and rancher. He and Bill Croghan built houses for around 30 years. Together, they liked coyote hunting and bird hunting with his dogs. Bill also enjoyed playing slow pitch softball. Around 1986, Bill worked for Eastern Kansas Livestock doing business as DBA for the Fort Scott Sale Company. In 2000, he went to work at Joe's Pens for Bob Walrod and Joe Donahue. He worked here until he retired in 2008.

Bill was preceded in death by both parents; two sisters, Betty Parker and Judy Powell; one infant brother, Jerry Brixey; in-laws, Paul and Margaret Evans; and beloved dog, Gator.
