Bill was born to Everett and Myrtie Bradley in 1940. He attended Randolph High School and enlisted in the U.S. Army in August 1963. He served within the 65th Air Defense Artillery, including 1 ½ years overseas in Okinawa, ending his active duty in June 1966. Bill and Lois were married on November 27, 1971, at First Presbyterian Church in Cambria. Bill had a love for horses and much of his time was spent tending to the needs on the family farmette. In his spare time, he enjoyed tinkering with computers, listening to or attending country music events, and announcing horseshows for the Dodge County Boots & Saddles horse club. Bill also enjoyed traveling, with family vacations to Colorado, the Dakotas, Nashville, and Arizona by camper or RV, and seasonal weekends in various horse campgrounds. In his later years, he enjoyed getting out of the house and watching his grandkids play sports.
