In 1986, he met his beloved eternal companion, Caryn. They were married in January of 1987. Bill was a proud father of 5 children, and 14 International exchange children.

He was a valiant member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, that knowledge, is a “Rock to my foundation.”

Bill loved motorcycles, singing in the car, fishing and hunting. He especially loved hunting for treasures and set the example of how to find a great deal.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his granddaughter, Hadley Sanders; and his son, Joshua Sanders.
