Bill was born on December 10, 1930, to Arthur and Blanche Ryerson. In 1952, Bill met Alberta in Knoxville, Iowa. By September 24, 1954, the two were married. Bill and Alberta went on to have two children, Rick Ryerson and Rhonda Ryerson.

Bill served in the Marines for multiple years, retiring from the military in 1953. Bill worked for many more years and retired from Pella Corporation. He greatly enjoyed spending time on his motorcycle, with Alberta riding in his sidecar. After retirement, Bill spent his time with his grandchildren and great grandchildren. No matter where he was or who he was with, Alberta was always by his side. After 69 years of marriage, the two were still inseparable.

Bill was predeceased by his wife, Alberta Ryerson; siblings, Louise (Dave) Kuntz and Howard (Betty) Ryerson; and daughter, Rhonda Ryerson. He is survived by his son, Rick (Teresa) Ryerson; grandchildren: Willy Ryerson, Tyler (Jennifer) Ryerson, Danny (Sara) VandeKraats, and Jessica (Zac) Stough; and several amazing great grandchildren.
