William was born in Fort Worth, Texas on March 20, 1956 and grew up in Arlington, Texas. He eventually moved to a spot on the Leon River in Hico, Texas where he fished all the time, that's where he found his peace. He loved being outdoors and going on runs with his fur baby, Bang. Those two were always side by side. More than anything though, William loved being a father, grandfather and great-grandfather. His daughter and grandbabies meant the world to him, especially his new great-grandchild. His friends were also like family to him. His caring spirit will be deeply missed by all that knew and loved him.
