He was born on August 8, 1941, to William James Tamietti, Sr. and Juel (Bonner) Tamietti in Los Angeles, California. Bill was raised in Walkerville, MT (Butte, MT) for most of his life and moved to Bozeman to attend Montana State University where he studied Civil Engineering. Bill worked for the Montana Department of Transportation-Butte Division while in college from 1967-1971 as a project manager. He later graduated with a Bachelor’s degree and moved to the Stockett area when he was offered an estimator position with McIntyre Construction of Great Falls, MT. During this time is also when he met the love of his life and his first wife, Patricia. Patricia had two daughters, Mirion Bacon, (step grandchildren were Bruce, Devin, and Whitney) and Nancy Goforth (step grandchild was Robert) who he became very close with throughout his life.  They were together until Patricia’s passing in 1980.

From 1972 to 1986, Bill was employed as an estimator for McIntyre Construction Company. Its during this time that he met his second wife, Barbara, whom he married in 1987. Barbara had three sons at the time of their marriage. Bill became particularly close to Mike Toy throughout his life. William and Barbara would divorce in 2007. From 1986 to present, Bill was the President/Estimator for his own company Tamietti Construction Company and TAMCO, INC. Tamietti Construction Company was a heavy-highway contractor specializing in bridges, dams, etc. Bill was a certified welder and had a CDL so that he could operate his own equipment when necessary.

Bill was the President of the Board of Directors for the Montana Contractors Compensation Fund. He was also on the Board of Directors for the Montana Carpenters Union.

Bill was known for the wonderful flowers he grew in his yard in Stockett. He was also known for his love of motorcycles, especially anything Harley Davidson. In his younger years, Bill loved to race snowmobiles and enjoyed hunting and trapping. Later in life, Bill enjoyed the simpler things. He would relish in the pool games he played with his friends.

He is preceded in death by his parents; his first wife Patricia; his stepdaughter, Mirion Bacon; and his step grandsons, Bruce and Devin Bacon.
