Bill was born in Booneville, Mississippi, July 28, 1936, to Douglas and Marguerite Gambill. He was educated in Booneville Schools, graduating from Booneville High School. He began a career with Pitney Bowes as the youngest hired service technician. His career with Pitney lasted 35 years as he worked his way to become the branch service manager servicing the entire State of Mississippi. During his time with Pitney he earned his mechanical and electrical engineering degrees.

Bill chose to retire from Pitney to become an entrepreneur. In 1992, Bill and his family embarked on a new venture, Mailroom Consultants, Inc.

Bill leaves a legacy of leadership, service to others, and a love for Jesus Christ. He was a devoted Sunday School teacher and deacon of Daniel Memorial Baptist Church for over 30 years. In 2000, Bill became a member of Country Woods Baptist Church and was an active member until his death.
