Bill passed away Saturday, March 12, 2022, in Fort Worth. He was born January 2, 1933, in Hillsboro to Johnson and Hattie (Wood) McKinney. Bill served in Korea for the United States Airforce from 1951-1953. He was a member of Nolan River Baptist Church. Bill retired from Johns Manville after 30 plus years of service. It has been said countless times that he was a “good man.” B.T. was devoted to his faith and family. He enjoyed fishing and woodworking. He collected boats and barbed wire. Bill was an avid reader of westerns and mysteries. His love of books led him to owning “The Book Store” in Cleburne for several years. Being a great cook, he even taught his wife, Liz, and his children to cook as well. He could be found at the auction house in his later years. Bill was an inspiration to many and will be missed greatly for his giving spirit.
