He married Linda Copeland, of Weatherford, in early 1957. They were married for 34 years, and had 2 children together. After graduating College, he started work at General Dynamics for about 3 years. Layoffs forced him back to Weatherford to work. Bill landed a job with The Texas Highway Department in Weatherford. He loved his job putting up and taking down signs and driving the big sign truck.

Bill then married Betty Miles Bosley in 1993. They spent 25 wonderful years together enjoying each other, birdwatching from their back patio, gardening and mowing the fields. Bill just loved working outside and building things. They enjoyed their time with all their children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. They also enjoyed traveling to play BINGO at numerous locations and the occasional trip to WinStar in Oklahoma to gamble. Bill was a gentle, quiet, soft-spoken man with a heart of gold.
