A native of Fayetteville, North Carolina, he was captain of his high school basketball team, acted in plays, and later attended A&T College. In 1956, he enrolled in the Army and re-enlisted into the United States Air Force, where he rose to the rank of Staff Sergeant over the course of 23 years, serving in both Korean and Vietnam Wars.
Bill was a member of the Prince Hall Masonic Lodge No.5 for over five decades and Pikes Peak Consistory No. 81 where he achieved the honor of 33rd degree Mason. As a member, he received numerous commendations for distinguished service to community and for his devoted fellowship to his beloved lodge brethren, Kadesia Temple No. 135, and he was active in the Pikes Peak Lodge #5 in Colorado Springs for many years. Bill was an avid fisherman who loved spending time on his own boat, and was also an accomplished chess player.
He is survived by his wife of 58 years, Uta, his three sons, Mike, Glenn, (Tamera) and Eric, (Alecia) and his eight grandchildren, Savannah, Cameron, Clayton, Isabelle, Justice, Nicole, Caleb, Paola and two great grandchildren, Roman and Camden.
