Bill was born in Nebraska to Louis and Zeta on August 7, 1933. He was raised on a chicken farm until the depression forced his father and uncle to move to California for work.

He worked for the FBI four years; both before the Army, and after. He finished his career after thirty two years working for the Los Angeles Times.
