He later took on other business ventures, such as owning a Pool Hall and a local Getty Mart, and was also a school bus driver. Bill was also a phenomenal billiards player, roller skater, and he had that one amazing dance move. He was also a passionate coach, teaching countless youth the rules and tricks to so many sports, which came so naturally to Bill, as he was a tremendous and well-rounded athlete.

Bill married young to his first wife, Sharon Carter, and was known to say that she gave him the best gift he could ask for, his kids. His oldest, his daughter, Korina C. Jones, and his youngest, his son, Timothy W. Jones. As well as their partners, Charles Viele (partner to Korina) & Rebecca Jones (wife to Timothy).

He is survived by his partner, Caren Welch, and her children and grandchildren, along with several nieces & nephews.
