William John Mountain Jr. “Choppers”
Was born to his father William John Mountain Sr. and mother Rosemary (Yellow) Mountain at Fairview Hospital in Minneapolis, Minnesota on March 14, 1967. He was the 5th child of 13.
Choppers attended Ascension Catholic School and Heart of the Earth Survival School, where he graduated. He survived a severe accident in the early 90s. He loved basketball and football, and when he was younger he was involved with the Boy Scouts. He loved his children: Anthony, Amber, Dillion, Sandra, Rosemary, and William Jr.III, his granddaughter: Mia Kelly and all his nieces and nephews. He enjoyed spending quality time with his brothers and sisters. He had a smile on his face all the time and he had a good sense of humor. Choppers would give anything he had away if you wanted it. He loved taking trips with his mother. Choppers will be missed immensely by all that knew him.
