Son of Robert S. Winchester and Mary Katherine Moore. Twin of Robert G. Winchester.
William was one of the ten Baylor University basketball players who lost his life in a single train/bus accident. Together they are known as the Immortal Ten.
It was because of this accident that Texas started constructing over-passes or underpasses at all places where state highways intersected with railroads. Across the United States, communities started requiring school buses to stop at all railroad crossings before proceeding.
