He graduated from a suburban St. Louis High School and received a bachelor's degree from Southeast Missouri State University, and in 1981 married Amy Lane, who survives of Marshall. Bill was a United States Air Force Veteran, serving in the 351st Strategic Missile Wing at Whiteman Air Force Base, where he attained the rank of 1st Lieutenant.

From 1991-2010 he was a professor in the business department of Missouri Valley College where he was also in charge of the Students In Free Enterprise. Through the S.I.F.E. program, he became involved in helping recognize local businesses who exemplified the core values of the program.
