Bill moved to Fallon, Nevada in 1979 along with his wife Karen and children Melissa and Dan. Bill and Dan started Oasis Online together in 1997 and were very blessed to be in business together for eighteen years before Bill’s retirement in 2013. Bill has over 50 years experience in business management and ownership. During his tenure at Oasis Online he served on the Governor’s Commission on Educational Technology for 6 years, as President of his local School Board and President of the Greater Fallon Area Chamber of Commerce. Although Bill retired in 2013, he continues to help out occasionally and flies the staff on a regular basis.
Bill has been flying for over 35 years. He and Dan co-own a Cherokee 6, PA32-300, 6 place aircraft. Having 24x7 access to a plane saves countless hours of travel time and greatly improves the response time to the rural districts Oasis serves across northern and central Nevada. President and owner Dan Slentz promises, “If you need us we will be there!” Access to the plane and pilot at almost any given moment helps Dan keep that promise.
Bill has written 7 children’s books and also enjoys , tennis, golf, boating, hunting and landscaping. Bill loves spending time with Karen, his wife of over 52 years, his children and his 8 grandchildren.
