Bill and his wife and their grown children have made international connections a family tradition. One or more have stood on six continents (still working toward Antarctica). The entire family are also loyal alumni of Auburn University where Bill received his engineering degree. The family sponsors an Auburn scholarship to encourage students to study abroad. 

Bill writes for periodicals, engages in business consulting, and volunteers with civic and charitable organizations. Bill is completing a memoir of his experience as a missionary in South Africa: Sojourn on the Veld: A Call to Missions, Machines, and Fellowship in South Africa’s Age of Apartheid.

Bill’s career was in engineering and marketing management. While working, Bill earned a master degree in engineering from the University of Alabama at Birmingham and an MBA from Vanderbilt University where he received the Leadership in Executive Education Award. Bill is a registered Professional Engineer.

Bill and his wife are members of The Church at Brook Hills in Birmingham. They enjoy entertaining their grandchildren at the family’s “farmette” in the Dunnavant Valley, Alabama.
