Bill was a resident of New Horizons Care Center in Lovell, Wyo., when he died.
He is survived by his wife Kathy, his children Billy (Danette) of Thermopolis, Bob (Kim) of Worland and Brenda Cronk of Cody, and his first wife and mother of his children, Bonnie Johnsey of Cody.

In accordance with his wishes Bill has been cremated and in accordance with his children’s wishes there were no services or viewing.

Bill was proud to have served in the Air Force from 1959 to 1963. He was stationed at the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs where he served as an Air Policeman.

Bill worked on several ranches holding the position of ranch hand, cow foreman, foreman and manager. After retiring from ranching, he worked for and retired from Enron Oil and Gas in Big Piney, Wyo.

For their retirement, Bill and Kathy bought some farm ground in Lovell, Wyo., along the shore of Lovell Lake. They enjoyed this location so much that Bill wanted it to be his final resting place. Some of his ashes will be scattered there.

Happy trails, Bill ... until we meet again.

Donations can be made in Bill’s memory to New Horizons Care Center and Stillwater Hospice, both located in Lovell.
