His co workers knew him as “Boomer” Bill was an avid sports fan enjoying numerous events throughout the Sealy and surrounding areas. He spent many years coaching his daughters in softball and attending their sporting events cheering them on. He stressed the important lesson of being both a graceful winner as well as a good loser. He often said this was one of the most important lessons in life. Bill loved spending time with his family. Some of his other favorite past times included listening and dancing to polka music, spending time on his ranch and working in his shop. Bill was a member of the Immaculate Conception Church in Sealy and a member of the American Legion.
