He was a Vietnam Veteran and proud Marine. He was combat wounded in the Vietnam War and received the Purple Heart. Bill attended Janesville High School, Cosmetology School in Madison, and Barber School in California. His career as a cosmetologist started when he was four years old and cut his sister's hair. He last cut hair at Great Clips, retiring in the fall of 2009, due to his health. Bill was an avid golfer, and shot his first hole in one on April 20, 2003. He loved golf, football, and fishing, but he most of all loved his wife, Sharon.
