William Dana Bible was born on Halloween Day in Lincoln, Nebraska during a football game where his father coached the Nebraska Cornhuskers to victory over the Missouri Tigers.
He was a graduate of the New Mexico Military Institute in Roswell, NM and of the University of Texas in Austin where he was also a letterman for the Longhorn Football team. As a member of the University ROTC program, Bill was inducted into the Army as a 2nd Lieutenant and was stationed in Newfoundland for the duration of his service during the Korean War.
Although he came from a football family, Bill carved out his own life in the oil patch of East Texas selling drill bits for the Hughes Tool Company before joining his fathe-in-law's (Ernest Daly) title company as a partner of Anderson County Abstract Company. He worked there continously from 1959 until his retirement in 2015.
Bill enjoyed golf, loved his Longhorns, traveled the world and built an exceptional group of lifelong friends. He lived his life full of faith and with an undying love of God and his wife. A life well lived.
He was preceded in death by his father, Dana Z. Bible; his mother, Rowena Bible; his step mother, Dorothy Bible; and his sister, Barbara "Barky" Michalke.
Bill is survived by his wife , Sara Nell Bible; daughter, Catherine Lee Bible; his son, Dana Rhodes Bible; grandchildren, William Charles Bible, Elizabeth Catherine Tenney and Mary Caroline Bible and great grandchildren, Jacob Elliot Tenney and Oliver Thomas Tenney.
A memorial service and reception will be held at First United Methodist Church. Arrangements have been entrusted to Bailey & Foster Funeral Home.
