The family moved to Harding County to work on Zeta White's place.
After Bill's mom passed away, the Cross family moved back to the family home outside of Sturgis, where they have lived, laughed, and loved for the past 39 years.
Bill only missed one Buckaroo ride in the 47 years since that invitation, and that was this year.He was preceded in death by an infant son, Billy Jeb; his parents, Burt and Polly Cross; and father-in-law, Glen Hardy. A memorial has been established for a Western SD Buckaroo High School Rodeo Scholarship. Friday, October 6, 2017, at the Sturgis Community Center Theater.
