In his 23 years of life, William touched the life of many others. He was one of those guys that when you met him, you didn’t forget him. Small in stature and big in every other way, William loved life. As a small child growing up, he was a typical boy. He loved hunting, fishing, riding horses, and of course, he was fascinated with fire trucks, medics, and police cars. When he became a young man it was no surprise that he chose the police force as his career. William loved his job and was truly living out his dream. On July 26, 2012, when his watch ended, the entire community came together to give support and love to his family, friends, and coworkers. This memorial fund is a way to give back to the community that William loved and protected.
