Bill had three daughters while married to (Jean Schlump) in Madison, Wisconsin. Bill enjoyed taking his family on road trips and discovering national parks. To his grandchildren, he was “Pa”. Tradition was for Pa to take his beloved grandsons fishing and hunting. He loved all things outdoors. He was a hunting and fishing enthusiast, traveling across the US and Canada to fulfill his passion. Among other things, he was an American hero – an Army veteran. Bill was also a devout catholic and member of St. Dennis Catholic Church in Madison.
