Meet Bill Bennett, a.k.a. Billy the Biker – a veteran, ex-con, ex-junkie, 1 percenter, two-time stroke and cancer survivor, and founder of a nonprofit that helps veterans in need. In Cheatin' the Reaper, he recounts his crazy life and what he's learned from it, and who knows? Maybe he'll even save you from making the same mistakes he did, if you pay attention.
This isn't your typical life. Picture this: Bill faces the Reaper head-on at least twice - once at 24 years old when he received last rites and at 57 years old during his second stroke. But finding humor in the darkest situations and being stubborn define him. As a kid, he beat up schoolyard bullies and jumped headlong into a life of crime and addiction. This may have helped him survive the Vietnam draft yet led to hard time in prison. Working with the Teamsters, and then later with his kung fu teacher in "collections," founding the Restless Few M/C and co-founding a nonprofit are just how Bill rides. Yet when he finds the love of his life and survives two strokes, outsmarting the Reaper again teaches him the ultimate lesson—it's about making a difference. Cheatin' the Reaper is a hell of a ride— and it's all true.
