He was born March 26, 1929 in Salt Lake City, Utah to Albert Wilmar and Lucille Barlow Dooley. The family moved Los Angeles, CA where Bill grew up and graduated from John C. Fremont High School, class of 1947. He served an honorable LDS mission to Australia from 1950 to 1952. He proudly served his country in the Army as a military policeman during the Korean Conflict. Bill served as a peace officer in southern CA for many years then worked in the Trucking Industry for many years as a long haul driver. Bill loved barbershop singing, and was a member of the Beehive Statesmen Chorus for many years. Bill was an avid fisherman, loved to cook and play the slot machines in Wendover. He had a "larger-than-life" presence, a LOUD sense of humor, and is a self-proclaimed "rascal" who enjoyed teasing and tormenting his 2 sisters Carol and Pat during family get-togethers. He was an active member of the LDS Church and served faithfully in many different callings including; Bishop, Priesthood Group Leader, and Stake Council.
He is survived by his children: Kathleen Peake, Terry (Bryce) Jolley, Wendy (Doug) Syphus, Brian Dooley, Mike (Becky) Dooley, Ronald Dooley, Lisa (Tom) Saatzer, Jennifer (Lane) Morgan, Julia Mills, Robert Dooley, 36 grandchildren, 24 great-grandchildren, sisters, Carol (Garry) Forsey, Pat Henderson, and many nieces and nephews. Finally, he is survived by his devoted wife, Marla, who selflessly cared for him for many years in their home until the very end.
There will be no funeral services. Bill will be cremated and there will be a private family viewing at the Larkin Cremation Society in Salt Lake City on Monday, November 4th at 1 PM. Interment will be at the Utah Veterans Memorial Park sometime in the Spring. His wife Marla would like to thank Encompass Home Health and Hospice, for their diligent and loving care for her husband until the very end. You watch yourself over there Leroy!
