He reenlisted from 1948-1952 during the Korean Conflict and was also honorably discharged. On June 27, 1970, William was united in marriage to Kathryn M. Lindahl in Mankato. He was an active Charter Member of Morson Ario VFW Post 9713 Mankato and local Chapter #10 Disabled American Veterans. William was a gifted musician, he played many musical instruments in bands and orchestras his entire life, but most well known for his mastery of the accordion and fondness of 'old tyme' music. William loved the outdoors, especially fishing, hunting and shooting sports and a good game of cards. He spent countless hours volunteering in his retirement. Always quick with a story and a joke, William's humor was contagious and will be missed by all who knew him.
