Bill met Rose Plachecki when they were both 16 years old. On April 4th, 1964 they were united in marriage at St. Boniface Catholic Church in Cold Spring, MN.

Bill served for 6 years in the Army National Guard. He was one of the founders of the Granite City Kennel Club, where he also served as president, and instructor for classes for many years. Bill’s hobby was breeding and showing his long line of beloved Kerry Blue Terriers.
    Until four months ago when his health declined, Bill was willing to give a helping hand to anyone who needed it. Whether it was driving someone to an appointment, delivering groceries, or helping his many friends with their dogs, he was always willing to help. Bill was a member of St. Marcus Catholic Church, Clear Lake, MN.
