We honored Dr. Bill Williams, the 2014 Businessman of the Year at at banquet held on November 13, 2014.

Bill R. Williams is the son of Shelby and Louise Williams of Buhl.  They farmed by Buhl and also raised cattle.  He was joined by a little brother in 1951. 

Bill graduated from Buhl High School in 1965. He attended College of Idaho, and graduated with a degree in Zoology and subsequently went to Pacific University to attend Optometry School. Bill met Carolyn Kennedy at Pacific.

Bill and Carolyn were married in 1972. They had two daughters, Darcy in 1978 and Annie in 1981. Darcy went to photography school and is living in Portland, Oregon and has recently gone back to school at Portland State and has a son, Archie. Annie and her husband, Jeff, have 5 children, Selah, Karis, Shalom, Rhys, and Gabe. They currently live in Asia.  They are linguists and are learning an unwritten language in hopes of building a written language and a New Testament in that language – a process that takes about 25 years.

Bill is an active member of Rupert Rotary Club and the Mini-Cassia Chamber of Commerce. Business is one of Bill's strengths. It is in his servant attitude and consistent "be there" work ethic that we are honored him at this event.

Jana is the daughter of Clyde and Carole Rogers. Jana grew up in Paul, and being the only daughter, her five brothers picked up the slack on the farm. Jana graduated from Minico High School, and after high school, she worked for a time then attended technical school. 

Tim and Janna married in 1974 they have two sons and two daughters. They both agree that their children, Cade, Michael, Melissa and Jill, their spouses and their beautiful grandchildren completely fill their hearts. 

As their family grew so did their farming operation which expanded in the Declo area and into Minidoka County. They purchased Jana’s parents farm north of Paul, maintaining a rotation of crops.  Tim also does a fair amount of custom work and enjoys raising a small cow/calf herd.

Tim and Jana, consider themselves true partners, complimenting each others strengths and abilities. “It’s not always been easy but it’s been a rich and fulfilling journey where each stage of life brings unexpected joys,” said Tim.
