He married Patricia (Pat) Annette Frame in the First Christian Church in Perkins on Father's Day, June 17, 1956. To this union three children were born; One daughter, Lisa and two sons, William (Bill) and Bruce.
Bill worked for Oklahoma Natural Gas for 41 years retiring as a Senior Field Specialist in 1997. In his younger years he enjoyed playing baseball, bowling, hunting, fishing and camping. His passion was his family and he loved singing and playing drums in several local country and western bands.
He is preceded in death by his parents, his wife of 62 years and one day, one sister, Linda Perkins, and one grandchild, Cale Drumm.
He leaves behind his children; Lisa and Jim Drumm of Stillwater, William (Bill) and Angie Holle of Bethany, OK and Bruce and Jennifer Holle of Red River, New Mexico.
