William (Bill) John Corring was born January 10, 1947 in Cedar Rapids, Nebraska. He grew up on a farm near Primrose, Nebraska, and graduated high school in 1965. After that, Bill moved to Omaha where he attended the Radio Engineering Institute for a year and a half.

Bill then worked for Control Data Corporation in Minneapolis, MN for a year before volunteering for the Army in 1967. He attended basic training in Ft. Lewis, Washington, followed by 9 months of Hawk Missile Fire Control Schooling in Ft. Bliss, TX before shipping off to South Korea for a year and a half. He was honorably discharged in 1970 at the Rank of SP 5. Bill later joined the National Guard under the “Try One” program from 1973-1974.

After he was released from the Army, Bill worked at Control Data in Omaha for 18 years, followed by Ash Grove Cement in Louisville for 3 years, and then worked at the Ft. Calhoun Nuclear Plant for 15 years before retiring in 2005.

Bill enjoyed spending time with his family, military memorabilia, polka music, and listening to his kids play saxophone.

    Bill will be missed guys. I know Rita always enjoyed the phone calls from him. That was very important to her. I always enjoyed Bill and our visits to Omaha. Linda if you need anything let us know and keep in touch. We probably won’t be there because of weather and COVID but you know we will have you in our hearts.
