William Reece Obituary

William Reece, a Sacramento educator and beloved father of four, passed away July 27, 2015, as a result of complications from kidney failure. He was 83.

He is survived by his loving wife of 53 years, Norma; sons R.W. (Sandi) and Doug (Stacy); daughters Linda and Kelly, and grandchildren Ryan, Michele, and Aldo.

He is missed and cherished by countless friends and extended family members. William is remembered as a patriot and Christian who lived a life of example. A tireless volunteer, he received fellowships from the Lyons and Rotary Foundations and was an active member and fundraiser for numerous local non-profits.

As a young man, he worked his way through college at Chico State and, later, Oregon State, where he earned his masters in business education. Helping pioneer the Regional Occupation Program (ROP) for the San Juan Unified School District, he directly and indirectly helped thousands of area students develop lifelong careers.

In the 80s, William "flipped" properties in Carmichael, Sacramento, Folsom and Orangevale as a second career, ultimately building his own dream home in Sierra City, CA. In retirement, he enjoyed opportunities to fish, hike, and spend time with friends.

Memorial services will be held August 7, 2015, 11 AM at Lind Brothers Mortuary and Chapel in Carmichael. Reception to follow at Frasinetti Winery in Sacramento.
