He resided in Rapid City during his childhood until the family moved to Minnedosa.

Bill moved to Winnipeg in 1974 when he took a position with the IH dealership on Oak Point Highway. He worked there until 1977 until he moved to Morden to take a position at the IH dealership there. He was introduced to the game of darts in 1975 by his brothers in law and absolutely loved the game and played right up to the time of his passing. This game was to become his passion.

He organized Zone 6 of the MDAI for southern Manitoba, thus introducing the game to a number of people in Morden and the surrounding area. He represented the province as part of the provincial team a number of times at the national level.
