After graduating from St. Bonaventure High School, Bill moved to Omaha in 1954 and began his lifelong career at Union Pacific Railroad.

Bill and Pat had four amazing children, Beth, Margie, David and Karen and were active members of St. James Parish and School.

Archer and they were united in marriage on September 17, 1993.
