In 2002 Bill and Marlene moved to Kansas City where Bill joined the Kansas City branch of Foulston Siefkin where her practiced until his retirement in 2017.  A devoted Catholic, volunteer and Kansas State Wildcat, Bill spent 15 years as an attorney for the Diocese of Dodge City.  He served on numerous civic and charitable boards, including Kansas State University School of Business,  University of Saint Mary in Leavenworth, Saint Mary of the Plains College, and Newman University.


Marlene and Bill began wintering in Peoria, Arizona in 2011 and moved there permanately in 2013, where they enjoyed the myriad of activities their Trilogy community had to offer. They also loved spending these last few summers at their condo in Edmonds, Washington, overlooking Puget Sound. Bill enjoyed a cold beer while watching the ships pass and listening to Jimmy Buffet tunes. Bill was the consummate gentleman, loving father and doting grandfather.
