Bill was born to a farming

Texas in the late 1940’s.
He knew the moment he
laid eyes on Inez that he
was going to marry her. A
short time later, he did just
that. Bill and Inez started
their family with the birth
of their first son in 1952,
and were blessed with 5
more children throughout
the years. He was a hard
worker and provider for his
family doing various jobs.
He was known to everyone
as a jack-of-all trades
as there wasn’t much he
didn’t know how to do. His
family knew that when he
bestowed upon someone a
new name, they had gained
his approval. Bill was a loving
husband, Daddy, Pa,
and Big Pa, who was tough
but gentle to a large family
who will feel his absence in
the coming days and years.
He was the humor and
the supervisor of all family
gatherings.
