Additionally, he was skilled in woodworking and took great pride in creating beautiful pieces of art. The garden was another sanctuary for William, where he nurtured plants and watched his vegetable garden grow. However, it was his English Bulldogs that truly captured his heart. He cherished their companionship and enjoyed every moment spent with them.

 He is preceded in death by his loving wife Wilma Jean Beall, who stood by his side through thick and thin. Together they created a lifetime of cherished memories.
