After graduating from Naches High School, he married the love of his life, Beverly Sedge. Together they raised 3 children. Jim, Vinda and Stacey.

He also worked for many years in excavating for Bob Myrick and Ken Leingang.

An avid hunter he traveled far and wide on many hunting adventures. He shared his love of the sport with many family members and friends. He always had horses and mules that were apart of his family. He has a Tack Collection to prove it. He was a member of the Naches Boots and Spur Club.

He was a talented inventor. Some of his favorite creations were a snow plane and a snow machine. He had a passion for weathervanes that have decorated the Valley. They were hand cut before lasers were around. He was extremely proud of his life size Elk Masterpiece that he made for the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation headquarters in Missoula Montana. He was very handy; he even restored a 1929 Model A Roadster that the family still has today.

A true craftsman who could weld, build and fix anything mechanical - curious as to how all things operated. An artist of metal design. Generous with his art to those who appreciated it. I remember my dad, Ray Carrell, telling stories about him and Bill, as High Schoolers going to the mountains climbing to the top and rolling rocks down the hill to watch what would explode in the path of the rocks. Later in life. stories of their hunting camp up Union Creek, horse trips and working together with Bob Myrick. Bill was a craftsman and appreciated everything Elk, deer, gun, wild or mechanical. Blessings of peace for Bev, Vinda & Jim during this time of Good-bye.
