Bill was born at the American base hospital near Munich, Germany, on 27 November 1946, to the late William Brevoort Bolmer III and Frieda Christine (Droeste) Bolmer, and Army corpsman and nurse. He spent his formative years in Rocky Hill and Flemington, NJ, and Langhorne, PA. Bill graduated from Neshaminy High School in Langhorne, and from Trenton State College. One of Bill’s early jobs was doing quality control at Stangl Pottery in Flemington.
An avid skier, Bill drifted out west, where he worked as a ski instructor, and as a chef at various casino and resort restaurants. Bill eventually settled in the Tahoe City/ Tahoma, CA, area, where he operated the Family Burger restaurant. He was to spend about 30 years in the Late Tahoe area.
