          Bill lived a full life, married Helen Porrok (nee Baraniuk) on November 6, 1954. They raised three children; William, Susan and Michael. Bill farmed most of his life and drove a school bus for a short while as well. He talked about his past horses frequently and had a passion for them. He told us a lot of stories from his younger years working with his Dad and brother cutting and hauling wood with a horse and sleigh for only $1/cord.
