William Kenneth Sargent was born on December 10, 1987 in Winner, the second son of Larry and Joan (Lebert) Sargent of Winner. He attended grade school at the rural Star Prairie School and graduated from Winner High School in 2006. Will started riding bulls at a young age and his love for the sport was a very important part of his life. He traveled all over the country to participate in PRCA rodeos and PBR bull ridings. In 2010, he was thrown from a bull sustaining serious injuries which included a fractured skull. His recovery from these injuries was long and with a young family at home, Will decided it was time to hang up his bull rope.
On December 8th 2011, he was married to Therese Assman in Las Vegas, NV. Together, they have two children: Wakely (5 yrs.) and Wynn (18 mo).
Will worked at various jobs including Coyote Fencing, Schmidt Trucking and currently was working at Rosebud Concrete. He really enjoyed being able to drive truck for an occupation.
He had a passion for guns, pheasant and coyote hunting, and taking his kids fishing.
