William Sherman Morrill Obituary
William Sherman Morrill

William Morrill was born in Sedalia MO on 6/19/45, the first of 6 siblings. The family moved to Whittier, CA when he was a toddler, where he grew up. He fell into a culinary career as a young man. In his almost 30 year career as a cook and chef, he worked in a variety of restaurants up and down the West Coast. When William reached Washington, he decided to go back to college, but he did not leave his culinary career behind until he finished his B.A., cooking in various restaurants, UW sorority and fraternity houses until he finished his M.A, He landed a job as an English-as-a-2nd-language teaching assistant at UW, and teaching ESL became his 2nd career for the next 16 years. Besides his art, music and travel interests, cooking for his communal household and friends was recreational for him in his last 14 years, and we loved eating his culinary creations. William passed away suddenly of heart failure on 11/21/2012. He will be greatly missed by his 5 remaining siblings, nieces and nephews, many of his past and current students and ESL colleagues, long-time AA and other close friends, including us, his housemates.
