April 9, 1927 – August 14, 2014
Our father, grandfather and great-grandfather left this world on the evening of Aug. 14, 2014, surrounded by his family. He was born on April 9, 1927.
After one year, six months and nine days, he joined his wife, Dodie. Dad loved to hunt, square dance and fish. Two days before he passed away he was fishing for the big one that got away. Dad also liked to go four-wheeling and snowmobiling. He would go for coffee with his buddies and spend half the morning shooting the bull with them. Dad could talk to anybody for hours. He loved to travel; they put more than 100,000 miles on their motor home.
The family would like to thank Family First Care and Hospice of Spokane for the wonderful care they gave Dad. Bill Sr. leaves behind five children, nine grandchildren, and nine great-grandchildren; and many nephews and nieces. Rest in peace, Dad.
