He then moved with his family to Shun Pike and then Vince Road before moving to Mercer County in 1943. He entered the Army in 1945, and was discharged in 1947, returning to Kentucky, where he married and began his family, having children Steven Wayne Duncan, wife Martha, Bradley Lee Duncan, wife Janet, Gina Sue Duncan, and Lisa Lynn Fleming, husband Theodore. In addition to his children, Bill has 4 grandchildren: Scott, Christopher, Jessica, and Montana, as well as 5 great grandchildren and a host of nieces and nephews.

After his retirement Bill began to square dance and enjoyed this activity so much, along with the people he met. A Remembrance Service will be held at 1:00 PM on Thursday, July 19, with Rev.
