He moved back to Roswell and was with the Roswell Fire Department from 1968 to 1975. Then Bill started Moss Construction and did all phases of residential and commercial construction & remodeling. He was also a master cabinet builder. In 1987, due to the economic slowdown, Bill went to work for the New Mexico Military Institute (NMMI).
