William James Rommel Obituary
William James Rommel 1921 - 2013 Bill grew up in Chicago and moved to Bakersfield, CA in 1941. Bill was in the Navy during WWII and spent 10 years proudly serving our Country. Upon his return Bill went to Bakersfield College where he earned his degree in Business. He went on to work at Sunny Farms and Cal Arvin Farms as their Bookkeeper. Bill's work ethic was astounding and at 91 years old he was still doing the books for his friends Bud Fletcher Farms 3 days a week. Bill loved his dogs and his beatiful yard that he cultivated over the 67 years he lived there, but we all knew he was the family photographer at every holiday/event. Bill helped many people in his lifetime and never asked for anything in return. He was a very special man to all the knew him and will be deeply missed. A special thanks to his longtime friend Bob Brown for helping him daily these last few months and Kelley Brown for taking care of him the last couple weeks. We couldn't have gotten through this time without the incredibly gifted nurses Michelle and Brenda from Optimal Hospice, nor our caregiver Andrea who formed a special bond with Bill. Graveside services will be at Hillcrest Mortuary Wednesday, May 15th. at 10:00 a.m.. Pallbearers will be Bob Brown, Bryan Brown, Brent Brown, Blake Brown, Reford Clagg and Dustin Cockren. www.bakersfield.com/obits
