Bill Hope

Bill Hope died on Sunday, December 16, 2012 in the comfort of his home with his life partner, Patrice Perkins. He succumbed to complications of heart failure at the age of 61. Bill was a Seattle businessman and Washington native. Bill attended St. Michael's University School in Victoria, B.C, and Pacific Lutheran University. He loved his cats, and he loved Patrice for 32 years. Bill always had a smile on his face. His sense of humor was contagious; his friendship was constant. He left us too soon. He was one of a kind and will be missed by all who knew him. In Bill's memory, donations may be made to the Institute of Stem Cell and Regenerative Medicine, University of Washington, 850 Republican Street, Room 453, Brotman Building, Seattle, WA 98109. A celebration of Bill's life will be held at a future date. For details, see Bill's obituary at www.bartonfuneral.com.
