Charles “Bill” “Chuck” lived life to the fullest. His passions in life were semi-truck driving, rattle snakes, taking pictures, hunting and fishing. His brothers, Kevin and Timmy, took him to Yellowstone, Freezeout or the mountains as some friends did. Bill lived for hunting season, mark helping him put in his permits. He was a lifer to Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation and the NRA, donating a gun for auction one year. He spent time with his sister and brother-in-law going hunting and just for a ride or his children spending times visiting him.
