Bill was born in Minyip in 1933. He moved to Cohuna in 1954 with Sid Cagally to play football for Union. Bill married Pam in 1958 and soon after bought a dairy farm in Queensland. Since moving to Barham in 1979, Bill has enjoyed living in such a caring community and his time as a Board Member at Murray Haven was a particularly special time. He loved the interaction with the residents and a highlight was the building and opening of the beautiful lounge and kitchen, and the McConnell wing. He and wife Pam are enjoying travel, and spending time with their wonderful family, in their retirement.
