Bill had a very exciting and varied life. He was born in San Mateo, California, but moved to Duncan BC in his adolescence. In BC he worked in a number of different ventures, including operating an electronics store, working as a bush pilot, leading fishing charters, and also working as a scuba diver for the RCMP. He obtained his Power Engineer’s Diploma, and started working in the Pulp and Paper industry. He moved to Prince Albert in the late 1960’s to help start up the new Pulp Mill in the area. He worked there until 1990, and then started to work for SIAST as a Power Engineering Instructor. He was proud to have obtained his 1st Class Power Engineering Diploma prior to his retirement. He retired in 2002, where he spent his time enjoying his beautiful home on the North Saskatchewan River with his wife.
