He had a love for nature and all animals. Throughout Bill’s life he was devoted to his faith with the Church of Jesus Christ Latter-day Saints. Bill was known to many as Papa, Grandpa Mac, or Wildman.

     Bill’s greatest gift in life was his personality and character, he never met a stranger. Bill’s charismatic personality even led him to be in a handful of western films and the movie Animal House. There was never a dull moment when he was around. He was constantly laughing, smiling, or telling a joke. Even at 82, Bill never lost his southern drawl.
