Bill retired after 35 years of service from the Tennessee Division of Forestry. He worked as a plow operator where he was dispatched many times out west and to the southern compact to help fight forest fires. He was a member of the Dover Church of Christ, an avid Piney Camper, and a jokester to all who knew him, because $50 is $50.
