Bill was born on February 8, 1940 in Lawton, Oklahoma to William Don Hood and Era Nevelle Martin Hood. Bill graduated from Odessa High school in Odessa, Texas.

In 1970 Bill moved his family to Alvin, Texas where he worked 10 years as a shift supervisor for Amoco Chemicals. In 1980 Bill moved to Saudi Arabia where he worked for Saudi Aramco until he retired in 1999. Bill worked so many different jobs in so many different Departments that the Arabs started calling him the joker because he fit in anywhere.

Upon retiring Bill moved first back to Alvin, Texas and then to Richmond, Texas. After retiring Bill worked 10 years doing income tax for AARP’s Tax Aide Program and, of course, he continued to play golf.
