Together they raised one Daughter and one Son. Bill grew up in the 4H and FFA programs. His love for these programs started the “Blass Hereford Ranch”, introducing his children to his love for cattle and horses. Bill had a natural talent for sharing stories and having everyone around him laughing. He had many other hobbies that he enjoyed, some of which included being an amazing water skier, or singing and dancing to his own beat.
