Bill was born in Lexington, on May 18, 1948 to the late W.D. “DA” and Sara Arnold Wiley “Big Mom” Juett. He was united in marriage to Paula H. Juett, of Frankfort. He graduated from Western Kentucky University in 1970, where he was a member of the Sigma Alpha Epsilon Fraternity. Later, he became the owner and operator of Juett Pools and Spas for 37 years. He was a member of Highland Christian Church. An avid fisherman, he was a Charter Member of Frankfort’s Bassmasters. He treasured time spent attending his grandchildren’s sporting events. Much of his life was spent on the farm, and he enjoyed winters in Florida. He was also the Founding Father of the “Frankfort Turtlers,” which he created himself. Known to many as “Big Bill,” his sense of humor and love for his family and friends will be cherished.
