Together, they were blessed with two daughters, Nancy and Jenna (Dale) Zins, and two grandsons, Trent and Josh Zins.

In 1972, Bill and Donna made the decision to move to Alexandria, where Bill joined the Alexandria Veterinary Clinic, a year later became a partner. Bill had a passion for his profession, caring for both large and small animals.

Beyond his work, Bill found solace and joy in the outdoors. He loved nothing more than hunting and fishing with family and friends, creating memories that would last a lifetime.

Bill was preceded in death by his parents and grandparents, but his legacy lives on through his beloved wife Donna, daughters Nancy and Jenna (Dale) Zins, grandsons Trent and Josh, sisters Roseann Aust and Carol Bares, as well as numerous nieces and nephews.
