June 9, 1935 — December 13, 2023

Passed away at his ranch home in Fallon, Nevada, December 13, 2023, surrounded by loved ones. Bill was born June 9, 1935 in Fallon to Laura Marke and Harry Corkill, Sr

He grew up on his family’s farm, instilling in him a love for farming and raising good quality livestock.

He received his early education in Fallon schools, graduating from Churchill County High School in 1952. He spent the next year in Dixie Valley, cowboying. His mentor, Dan Childs, arranged for him to attend Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo, California, where he spent two years participating on the college rodeo and livestock judging teams.

In 1956 he enlisted in the U.S. Army and spent two years in Germany.

Upon his return he and his brothers purchased back their father’s original farm plus the Cushman Ranch. In 1960 he married Mary “Bunny” Cushman and they devoted the next 63 years following their dreams– raising and supporting their family in their endeavors.

He was preceded in death by his parents and brother, Gaylan.
