He was born on December 30, 1944, in Rapid City, South Dakota. Bill, as he was affectionately known, lived a fulfilling life filled with love, service, and dedication to his family and community. Bill's journey began on a farm near Hill City, South Dakota, where he learned the value of hard work and perseverance. After graduating high school in 1963, he enlisted in the U.S. Navy and bravely served his country during a five-year tour in Vietnam. His service on an ammunition ship off the coast of Vietnam and later in Danang showcased his unwavering commitment to duty. Bill was honorably discharged in 1968, having shown great courage and resilience during his time in the military. After his discharge from the Navy, Bill moved to Gillette, WY, where he started a new chapter in his life. He worked in the oilfield industry, starting from pulling units and eventually owning one of his own. Over the years, he transitioned into the chemical business as a warehouse delivery man before retiring in 2012. Bill's strong work ethic and determination were evident throughout his career. Bill had a kind heart and a caring soul which drew people towards him effortlessly. In 1970, he met Kay Naylor whom he married and had two children with; Karla Jean Belmont Hix and William “Bill” Thomas Belmont. He was a loving and caring father who always prioritized teaching his kids about the importance of family and taking responsibility. They would spend most weekends skiing and camping, and Bill would often make his famous Hobo dinner on the campfire. After their divorce in 1984, he bought land out by Rozet, Wyoming, where he continued to encourage his children’s participation in 4H and other related programs. In a twist of fate and when Bill least expected it, he found love again with Gail Sandy, whom he married on April 20th, 2002. In 2005, Bill and his beloved wife Gail took on the role of guardians for Gail's four grandchildren, raising them as their own. This selfless act exemplified Bill's deep sense of family values and his willingness to go above and beyond for those he loved. He found immense joy in attending his grandchildren's and great-grandchildren's sports events, cherishing every moment spent with them. Beyond his professional achievements and commitments to his family, Bill had a passion for outdoor activities including hunting and fishing. He also enjoyed taking care of his chickens and assisting with ranch chores like feeding cows and brandings on Clarky Reynolds Ranch and other ranches near the Adon Road. Bill even supplied goats for NHR from 1993-2002. In this time of mourning, Bill is survived by his loving wife Gail Belmont, of Rozet, WY, who stood by him through thick and thin, his adopted sons (grandsons) LeRoy and John Belmont, daughter Karla (Mike) Hix of Highlands Ranch, CO, son William T. Belmont of Sheridan, WY, stepson Jason Sandy of North Dakota, his grandchildren Kortney Hix of Highlands Ranch, CO, Mikayla Hix of Parker, CO, Kyle Hix of Highlands Ranch, CO, Brittany Orozco of Gillette, WY, Andreana Armstrong of Gillette, WY, Tanya (Adam) Lara of Rozet, WY, his great grandchildren Adrian Lara, Korbin Christensen Orozco, Skylah Christensen, Karson Christensen, and numerous nieces and nephews. He is proceeded in death by his parents; Roy and Florence Belmont, brothers; Calvin and Milo (Bud) Belmont, sisters; Pat (Bill) Smith, Noreene (Dave) Guiser, Francis (Louis) Pettit, Linda (Melvin) Heirmeier, and Nadine (Ed) Henschel, father in law; Roy Hampton, step mother in law; Bernice Hampton, mother in law; Thelma Landers, brother in law; Roger Landers, sister in law; Elaine Hampton, and stepfather in law; Richard Landers. His memory will forever be cherished by all who knew him as a devoted husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, friend, and colleague. William Roger Belmont's life was one well-lived—a legacy of hard work, love for family, service to country, and unwavering dedication to those around him. May his soul rest in eternal peace knowing that he touched the lives of many with kindness and compassion.
