    Bill was an active member of the Single Action Shooting Society (SASS) at the Litchfield Sportsman’s Club. Bill chose the shooting name of Ross Haney after a character out of his favorite Louis L’Amour book collection. He and Carol (a.k.a. Sunny Day) enjoyed shooting with their friends at hundreds of club matches over the years competing in Cowboy Action Shooting while preserving the history of the Old West.

  3. A word from Coolwater Mike about his brother, One-Eyed Fat Man... 

    Sept. 4, 2020

    "Another day of hospice.  I awoke to the bluest skies we've had in months, it's a fine day and the angels were at my door this morning.  At 11:07am they took the hand of my brother, the One Eyed Fatman and Marine Vet to lead him to meet our heavenly father.
    It was standing room only in his room as God's emissaries gathered him in their arms to carry him away, the tears of sadness and love were flowing freely among the gathered family as they bid him farewell. No more pain and suffering, just the memories of a good man gone to soon. Please pray for him and us for we are in great need of them."
