William married Evelyn Dickhoff on December 9, 1939 in Hillsboro.  William was a life-long farmer and even after retiring in 1984, he still maintained a passion and a love for farming.  Bill and Evie lived most of their lives on a farm before building a home in Hillsboro that was always open to family and to friends.

Above all, Bill was a loving husband, father, and grandfather.  He had an unwavering devotion to his family and to his faith.  He was a strong, proud man that was gentle, loving, and kind.  He always put his family first.
