Bill attended Rosemont Elementary in Dallas, and later moved and graduated from Duncanville High School in 1984.

After college graduation, Bill embarked on a career with Carrington Labs, Delsite Biotechnologies, and Abbott Labs that spanned a total of more than 30 years.
As an author, Bill wrote the book “Revival: It’s Time to Live Again” as a faith-based effort to help others overcome obstacles, tragedies, and difficult times in their lives. Friends and family often comment on his unselfish nature, and putting other’s needs above his own, as with his volunteer work with Heart of the City.
