Bill retired from Gulf Power Company in 1999 after 38 years, his last position with the company was as a supervisor at the Crist Steam Plant. He was well respected and liked in his workplace.    Bill was an avid sportsman who loved to hunt and fish. He was a member of the Gravel Creek Hunting Club in Camden, Alabama, where he served as their president and was known as “Cotton”.  He passed his knowledge of hunting on to his son Dean and grandson Joey.  Many club members have benefited from his knowledge of the land they were hunting on. He was an excellent cook which the club members can attest to. Every spring he labored making a huge garden for his family which he also shared with his friends and neighbors.
