Meet Carlton Senior Living‘s spotlight resident Willis “Bill” Courtney – Bill was born as the only child to Willis and May Courtney in San Francisco, California. He has always resided in California since being born and moved to Sacramento when he was nine years old. However, Frank Sinatra said it best and Bill agrees that he left his heart in San Francisco, his favorite city in the world.
After marrying his beloved late wife Shirley, they welcomed to the world and their family three beautiful children, a daughter and two sons. Bill attributes the birth of his children as being his favorite life experience thus far. Although Bill was employed with the State of California Department of Water Resources for over 35 years, in his free time you could find him enjoying the leisure of golfing alongside his beautiful bride or vacationing in Hawaii, one of his favorite places to travel.
It would come as no surprise to learn that one of his most notable accomplishments is competing and winning the Japanese and American Flyer Club golf tournament. Bill believes that in life a good philosophy to live by is “always keep them laughing.” He enjoys spring the most which is why his favorite thing about Sacramento is the beautiful trees. When not outdoors can be found inside the comfort of his apartment watching anything John Wayne related! When asked who he would want to have dinner with he replied with a smile, my wife, 15 years ago. We are glad to have Bill as a resident of Carlton Senior Living Sacramento – Enhanced.
