Bill graduated from Oregon State University with degrees in forestry. He then worked for the State of Oregon with the Department of Forestry and a variety of Human Resource agencies. After retiring in 1998, Bill and his wife, Carolyn, moved to Bend and soon joined Foundry Church (then First Baptist Church). He is active in both local and global missions, and seems to be called on when budget questions arise for the church and missions. In his spare time, Bill enjoys hiking our many beautiful trails in Central Oregon and reading.
