He received his Bachelor of Science from West Texas State University and a Master of Education from Southwestern Oklahoma State University. He spent the majority of his working career as an educator, teaching, spending the most time at Lamar Consolidated ISD in their GED education program.

Bill Daughters was a kind-hearted, loving father who wanted nothing more than to see his children be successful. He enjoyed seeing his grandchildren play sports, perform in school plays, and produce artwork, and he loved to tell anyone who would listen about their accomplishments. Bill also loved to help anyone who needed it. Always with a smile, he was a generous man with his time and efforts for the benefit of others.

Bill will be remembered for his humor, love of his family, and his willingness to help others. His spirit will also live on through his extended family and friends.
