He was born on March 1, 1963 in Monmouth, IL, the first-born son to Robert and Ruby (Taylor) Inman.   Bill was raised and educated in Monmouth and graduated from Monmouth High School in 1981.   

After High School Bill dedicated the next 20 years of his life to serving in the United States Navy.   Throughout his career, he served on the USS Independence, which his father served on before him.  Bill loved Bald Eagles for the patriotism they represented and often collected statues and figurines.
