Bill Child serves as chairman of the board of RC Willey. He took the business over in 1954 from his father-in-law with a 600-square foot store in rural Syracuse, Utah. He sold the business to Warren Buffett in 1995 and was instrumental in convincing Buffett to expand outside of Utah and still stay closed on Sundays. Bill earned his bachelor’s degree from the University of Utah in 1954. Bill and Pat have eight children.
