Bill was born at Margaret Mace Hospital in North Wildwood, NJ, on April 19, 1929, and raised in West Wildwood, NJ by his parents, Lewis and Clara Morey.

He also has 7 grandchildren: William "Bud", Eric, and Brett Morey, John and Sara Freeman, Drew and Jenna Ankney, 6 great-grandchildren: William "Buddy", Ellasyn, Delaney, Waylon, Joel, and Marshall Morey.
