He graduated from Buffalo High School in 1967 and attended University of Missouri where he graduated in 1971. Throughout his lifetime Bill enjoyed raising cattle, going to any type of auction or sale and trading real estate. Later in life he was truly in his element working for his nephew’s fireworks business and those that got to see him on the 4th of July in Rolla or Springfield and New Year’s Eve in Gretna, LA can still picture the big smile on his face. Bill was preceded in death by his parents, one brother Robert Dean (Bob) Hale; two sisters, Shirley Weatherly and Louise Smith. He is survived by his wife Georgia and son Matt. He also leaves behind many nieces, nephews, other family members, and many friends who will all miss him.
