Bill, called "Mortimer" as a child to distinguish him from his grandfather and cousin, was the son of Harry Elmer and Harriet Lavinia (Mortimer) Gilmore. He had two sisters, Helen Gilmore Schier, and Lucille Gilmore Ransom. He was the fourth generation in his family to work the family farmland, and he was followed by his son and now his grandson.

Bill married Emily Jane Handler 23 October 1937 in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. They were parents to three children: Patricia, Janis and William M. II.

He was an avid genealogist and compiled detailed information about his ancestors, including his g-g-g-grandfather, Huriah Gilmore, who was a Revolutionary War Veteran.
