During this time Bill attended and graduated from Missoula County High School where he enjoyed playing baseball, basketball and track. After high school Bill served ten years in the National Guard.

Bill married the love of his life, Laurise, on May 8, 1964, in Missoula, where they resided. Bill was eventually employed by the paper mill in Frenchtown where he worked for over 20 years.
