His parents were William Clyde Lindmier, Sr. and Mabel Tallman Lindmier. The family moved to Wyoming in 1916 where they homesteaded near Lost Springs. The senior Lindmier moved to Douglas and began a plumbing business in 1938.
William served with the U.S. Navy in World War 2 between 1944 and 1946. In May 1947, he began work on the Burlington Route railroad as a fireman until November of that year.
