The son of Lyle Vernon and Dorothy Edith (Ellis) Clinton, Bill was born on December 26, 1942 at St. Anthony’s Hospital in Carroll, Iowa. He grew up in Sac County and graduated from Crestland High School, in Early, Iowa in 1961. In 1964, he married Georgea Pedersen in Early, Iowa. They were the parents of Jennifer Aileen and Chad William. Growing up, Bill was very active in 4-H. He showed his prized Jersey cows at many county fairs. As a 16 year old, he was the first Iowan to win the breed championship at the Ak-Sar-Ben Livestock Show and was also named the number one showman. He won the same two honors that year at the National Dairy Cattle Congress in Waterloo. During his life Bill worked for Quaker Oats, McCann Construction (doing the cement work at Fairview Elementary School and the Carroll Recreation Center), and the Hiland Potato Chip Co. He thoroughly enjoyed being a school bus driver for Carroll Community Schools for 20 years and he owned and operated his own business, Pest-A-Rest. Bill had many hobbies and interests. He loved horses and raised Registered Quarter Horses. Bill was an avid sports fan, especially when it came to the Iowa Hawkeyes and he attended many of their bowl games. In his younger years, he was the catcher for the Carroll Red Carpet slow pitch team. He coached Carroll Little League and flag football for many years, winning the city championships several times. In his later years, he was often seen at local sporting events sitting in the bleachers. He is survived by his children, Jennifer (Ronald Rotert) of Omaha and Chad Clinton (Michelle Kult) of Coon Rapids; 7 grandchildren: Schuyler, Nathan, and Darick Rotert of Omaha and Kimber (Becker) of Ames, Christopher, Alexander, and Haley Clinton of Carroll; 5 great grandchildren; and 3 step-grandchildren: Joshua, Mira, and Elia Esdohr of Coon Rapids.
