At an early age the family moved to Westville and then moved in 1929 to make Peggs their permanent home. During WWII, Bill served his country in the U.S. Army. In January of 1944, he married the love of his life, Alpha Keeton, in Peggs, OK. This union was blessed with two sons and one daughter and almost sixty-one years of marriage, until Alpha's passing in 2005. A farmer and rancher by trade, Bill enjoyed being out of doors with his livestock and crops. He never met a stranger and enjoyed meeting people and having a friendly chat. He made sure his family was provided for and enjoyed time spent with his family. He passed from this life on Friday, February 25, 2011 in Tulsa, OK with his family at his side. He was eighty-seven years old. He will be greatly missed by his family and many friends.
