Bill accepted Jesus as Saviour at an auction sale when 2 Bible school students asked if he knew Jesus. He earned his journeyman mechanic papers and his interprovincial heavy duty journeyman ticket. Bill worked at the Purity 99 Service Station, Standard Motors, the Swift Current Research Station and the Department of Highways. He retired in 1997. As a single parent, he nurtured his daughters. The three of them took holidays in Malta and Montana, picked saskatoons and visited Grandma and Grandpa Wall Sunday afternoons. When Bill married Marilyn, he became Dad to 2 sons. His grandchildren and great-grandchildren were the light of his life. He was a gentle, even-tempered man. Children whom Bill picked up for Sunday school thanked him for his part in their faith journeys. In later years, he served West Bank Bible Camp by fixing vehicles, renovating a granary into a cabin, and doing odd jobs. In retirement, he worked with Braun Construction, where he developed a love for woodworking.
