Bill was born on November 12, 1933, and raised in Josie, Alabama, where he worked in a Cotton Mill before he moved to Dimondale, Michigan, where he was employed by General Motors for 26 years. His love for racing took root in Michigan and never let go. He made a name for himself in the “Pink Pig” #15 dirt car. He used his extensive automotive knowledge to build cars from the tires to the roof in all aspects and then be able to drive them to the checkered flag. He passed this love of racing onto his sons and now his grandson AC. He then moved back to Alabama settling in Athens, and then later, upon retirement from General Motors Alabama, he moved to Andalusia. He made his home here enjoying of course racing, CB radio, fishing, and just being with his friends and family.

Memorials may be made to Mt. Pisgah Baptist Church, 25211 Antioch Road, Andalusia, AL 36421.
