Bill has been a life-long resident of West Texas. He grew up in Monahans and later moved to Odessa. Bill is married to LaDona. He was employed at The University of Texas of the Permian Basin for 16 years. However, due to declining health in 2012 he has become disabled. Many of you will know Bill as a working musician playing events throughout West Texas and Eastern New Mexico. Music performance has been a passion for Bill since childhood. Sadly his disease has forced him to abandon playing the drums until his health and stamina improve.
Bill was diagnosed with Hepatitus C in the mid 1990’s. He slowed the progression of the disease by taking all the measures possible to improve and maintain his health. The disease finally reached the end stages of Cirrhosis and Cancer. He was fortunate to have received a liver transplant in Dallas, Texas on February 9, 2013. Bill and LaDona realize that funding this surgery and post transplant care is a monumental task.
