Bill Crismore was born and raised in Hot Springs, Montana and graduated from high school in 1952.  In 1954, Bill moved to Libby where he worked at logging jobs and for the Montana Highway Dept. for several years. In 1972 Bill and his wife Carol started Crismore Logging.  They brought Forest Service and Montana state timber sales and sold the logs to area mills.  Bill loved working in the woods and liked and respected the people he worked with. When logging slowed down they expanded the business to include road building and maintenance.

Bill has always been a supporter of his community.  For many years he and his crew donated work, logs, equipment and money to support Libby Logger Days. He is a past board member of the Montana Wood Products Association, the Libby Area Chamber of Commerce and St. John's Lutheran Hospital. Bill was president of the Montana Logging Association from 1989 until 1991.  He was elected to the Montana State Senate in 1995 and served until term limits sent him home. 

Bill and Carol have 7 children, 19 grandchildren and are now enjoying their great grandchildren.
