Bill grew up in Cripple Creek, where he graduated from High School in 1959. He was well-known for his magical abilities to create unobtainable parts for antique cars and other machinery. Friends came to him for help with all sorts of mechanical problems which he was happy to meet as a challenge. Bill was a skilled guitarist, and owned a number of musical instruments. He had a lovely singing voice, plus a great sense of humor. He will be sorely missed by friends and family alike.
