He served in the U.S. Army from July 12, 1956 – July 30, 1959. Bill married Nancy Cofield on June 25, 1960. Life was an adventure! Together they lived in Colorado for 20 years, where he enjoyed checking out the old gold mines. Then they moved to New Mexico, Arizona and back home to Minnesota in 1999.
