Biography

William's father was mostly Native American.[1] He was a rescue diver. He built bridges-was in concrete construction. Later he moved houses. In order to survive the depression, Bill and Bert fished, and the opened a fish market. They invented the scoring of fish technique, which involves cutting the fish in such a way, especially carp, so that the bones cook out while the fish cooks.
