Bill was born in Vancouver, British Columbia, and raised in Weyburn, Saskatchewan. He was a graduate of the University of Saskatchewan with a Bachelor’s Degree in Commerce.
Bill proved to be a very successful salesman and businessman throughout his career; this was highlighted by his position as Vice President and General Manager of the Royal LePage Commercial Real Estate branch in Calgary.

In his later years, Bill was a voracious reader and was passionate about life. He worked out regularly and enjoyed billiards with friends. Not one to mince words, he was a straight shooter with strong values, never afraid to exercise his sharp wit and sarcasm.
