William Klev Schoening was born in Casper Wyoming to Gudrun Irene Kittilsby Schoening and John William Schoening.

Bill attended Lake Forest Park Elementary then graduated from Roosevelt High School and the University of Washington (Alpha Sigma Phi Fraternity). He served during WWII in the Pacific as a US Navy Corpsman. His 41 year working career was spent in Real Estate, Insurance and Boyer Escrow where he made many lifetime friends.

He was a lifetime member of the Boy Scouts of America, earning the prestigious Silver Beaver Award; a member of the Lake Forest Park Presbyterian Church, University of Washington Alumni Assn., Pacific NW Ski Assn. and Pacific NW Ski Education Foundation.
