b_270_202_16777215_00_images_stories_bill.jpgBill grew up in a farm family in central Illinois. In fact, his home did not have electricity until he was 18 years old! He devised a way to listen to the family radio by hooking it up to a car battery.

Through the years Bill enjoyed traveling to northern Minnesota to fish for northerns, wall-eyed bass and “anything else that would take the bait.” He’s watched John Wayne movies his whole life and still enjoyed them whenever possible at Luther Place in Prairieview, along with visiting with his 7 grandkids and 7 great-grandkids.

Bill had heard about Prairieview for years, the great care and good food. He said, “We got the best cleaning lady in the world!” Bill wondered, “I don’t understand why everyone doesn’t want to come to live at Prairieview.”
