The Guest Book is expired.
William E. Siler (Bill), 80, passed away on February 21, 2013, at Mountain Home, Arkansas. Bill was born in Indiana on May 4, 1932, to Nova and Ed Siler. He worked in the family vending business as a youth and later as a truck driver. Bill also worked in a career in construction.
In 1985, he came to Arkansas in semi-retirement and loved spending hours on the lake with family and friends, traveling the country in his RV, and he especially enjoyed his work with a veterinarian.
He is survived by his wife, Buff (Engeler, Snyder); a brother, Jack (wife Sarah), of Lakeland, FL; two sons, Daniel Siler of Superior, WI, John McDonald Snyder, Jr. (wife Catherine), of Little Rock, AR; a daughter, Margee Snyder Taylor (husband John), of Benton, AR; six grandchildren, Dominic Siler, Aaron Siler (wife Jackie), Joel Siler, Tasha Ra'ja Bryan Snyder, John McDonald Snyder III, William Augustus Snyder and several nieces and nephews.
A man accomplished in many varied fields, his favorite expression was "I know just enough to be dangerous". This was not a fact. Bill knew enough to help many people with whatever was needed. He always found a way.
