He lived in Happy Camp until the age of 11 when his father died in a plane crash while on a search and rescue mission. The family moved to Sacra- mento where Ida Mae met and married Lieutenant Colonel Bud Briggs. The family moved to Japan where Bill spent his freshmen through junior years of high school. The family returned to California and Bill graduated from Coming High School in 1960. After graduating from Sacramento City College, he moved to South Lake Tahoe and worked for architect Bob Mason and Plimpton-Radke Construction. During that time, he served in the Coast Guard Reserve: In 1965 Bill met Kathryn Dorothy Nelson and they were married in November 1966. Bill and Kathy moved to Eureka in 1968, where their children, Troy and Erin, were born and where Bill graduated from Humboldt State University. Following graduation, Bill was supervisor of Humboldt County Parks. Bill went on to become a warden for the California State Department of Fish & Game from 1974 to 2002. He served as a warden in Long Beach, Napa and finally Quincy, where the family has lived since 1980. Bill was a founding member of the Humboldt County Audubon Society, and later was active in Ducks Unlimited and Quincy High School Boosters. For more than 25 years, he dedicated much of his time and energy to the North American Wildlife Enforce- ment Officers Association, holding various offices including president. From an early age, Bill was known for his artistic and athletic abilities. He estab- lished the business Wildlife Traditions in the early 1980s through which he sold his artwork. Bill pitched for the Coast Guard and was offered a tryout with a Phillies farm team. He played recreational softball for most of his life. Bill taught animal be- havior, wildlife law, equine behavior and art at Feather River College. He also taught art classes through Becoming an Outdoor Woman, Main Street Artists and the Blue Goose Gallery. Bill particularly enjoyed spending time fly fishing, bird watching, playing with his grandsons, playing poker, softball and horse- shoes, traveling each sum- mer to NAWEOA conferences and socializing over donuts with his friends. He is fondly remembered for his good- natured harassment of friends and family. He leaves his wife of almost 44 years, Kathy; his son, Troy and daughter-in- law Katherine Nielsen; grandsons, Wes and Theo; daughter Erin and son-in-law Craig Scott.
