Bill Alderson grew up on a ranch outside of King City California. His mother's family came to California in the mid 1800's and settled on the Coast in a place name called Pacific Valley, North of San Simeon, South of Monterey and Big Sur.

Bill spent much of his youth on the Coast with his grandparents and still returns to hike the rugged area of the Santa Lucia mountain range.

Bill has three living children, Jewyl, Amy and Sarah. Nichole, died when she was "Almost 10" during surgery to correct a congenital heart defect.

Amy has two children Ashtyn and Colton who call Bill Pop!
