William was a musician in a one-man-band, just playing guitar and harmonica. He married Lorene Beatrice Shipley in 1935 and their first child, Waylon Arnold Jennings was born on June fifteenth 1937.

He did just about everything at one time or another, worked the cotton fields, ran a creamery, owned a gas-station and drove a fuel truck.
He once broke his back in Hobbs, New Mexico, and went home from the hospital in a back-brace and immediatly went and pulled cotton.
When William and his family moved from his father's farm to the Bittner farm it was no easy task, he worked sunup to sundown and still didn't have anything to eat, he was paid a dollar a day.

Much like his sons, children adored him. He could walk up to any child and they would be shy to him, but in only a few mintues that same child would be cuddling up next to him.

William fathered three boys after the birth of Waylon (originally named Wayland)
Following Waylon were:
Tommy Jennings,
James Jennings
and the youngest : Phillip Doyle "Bo" Jennings.

William passed away on June 3rd, 1968, of a heart condition although he hadn't been sick.
