His dad was clerk of district court and his mom was receptionist/bookkeeper. In the 60's his dad bought the movie theater and the family ran the theatre until Bill was out of high school.

Bill went to elementary, middle and high school all within a few blocks of where they lived. Bill graduated from high school in 1972, he then attended Simpson College from 1972-1973. Bill decided to join the US Navy and was able to travel to various places like Hawaii, Taiwan, Japan, Philippines, and Hong Kong. While in the Navy, Bill served on the USS Kinkiad for 6 months and the USS Ashtabula for 6 months. Bill was in the Navy from 1974-1978. After the Navy, Bill was interested in Medical Science so he started undergrad medical science at Peru State College from 1978-1981 where he graduated with honors. Bill attended UNMC Omaha Pharmacy School from 1981-1985, and did his Clinical Residency- VAMC in Tucson, AZ in 1986.

Keenan was born in Tucson, AZ in 1986 the day that Bill took his pharmacy boards. In 1989 Bill moved to Sioux City, IA and worked at Saint Luke's Medical Center and then Quintin was born in 1992. Bill then moved to Salem, MO in 1997. In 1999, Bill met Mary and they moved to Big Spring, TX in August of 2000 and he increased his family with Mary, Stephanie, and Sheena.

In 2004 Bill, along with Mary, Stephanie, and Sheena moved from Texas back to Iowa. In 2004 they moved to Cherokee, IA where they have made their home. In 2006 Bill and Mary decided to make their dreams come true and started their own restaurant- Corvo's, and had to close in 2010.

Bill lived cooking, his vegetable garden, selling his vegetables at the farmers market, and canning. Most of all he loved his children, his grandsons, and his family and friends.

Bill walked in the high school hallways with a smile. He made time to say hello to me several times. May he rest in peace! May our Lord be with his family in this difficult time.
