Bill passed away unexpectedly at the age of 72. Bill was a devoted husband for 49 years to the love of his life, Shirley Jean (Johnson). They had one son, Brett Michael. Bill then became "Grandad" to three grandchildren, Justus (22), Brianna (13), and Chloe (7) and one great-grandchild, Jett (5 mos.). Bill was known and loved by more friends than we can count. He was a caring man who always greeted you with a big bear hug. He was baptized as one of Jehovah's Witnesses in 1953 and devoted his life to helping others learn truths from the Bible and the promise it holds out of a peaceful future on a paradise earth. In connection with his faith, he graciously volunteered his time and energy to helping others, who were hospitalized and in need of assistance. He will be remembered most for all of the genuine loving kindness he gave so generously to all who were blessed to know him. A Memorial Service will be held at the Crestline Kingdom Hall of Jehovah's Witnesses (720 Crestline Dr) on Saturday, December 22 at 2pm.
