Wilbur Stewart (Bill) Squire

Wilbur Stewart (Bill) Squire passed away peacefully at home on May 9. He was born in Iowa on Sept. 26, 1920.

He was pre-deceased by his wife, Marilo, his granddaughter, Libby Falk, and his son-in-law Dennis Falk. His daughter, Kathleen Falk, son, Bruce Squire and wife Christina, brother John Squire, four grandchildren and five great-grandchildren, survive him.

When growing up in Shenandoah, he and his three brothers worked for their father at Squire Dairies. During World War II Bill served in the Army Air Corps as a flight instructor in Greenland and Fort Sumner, New Mexico. He received an accounting degree from the University of Texas in Austin and moved to Albuquerque with his family. He practiced as a CPA for many years. He served with the NM Society of CPAs and was a past chairman. After retirement he did volunteer work helping others with their accounting and taxes. Bill also served as the volunteer Treasurer of the Balloon Fiesta for a number of years. He also loved working in his "Garden of Eden". Bill loved New Mexico and taught his children to camp and fish in the mountains.

A private memorial service has already taken place at Central United Methodist Church where Bill and Marilo were lifetime members. He served many positions in church over the years. His remains will be buried next to his wife in Clarinda, Iowa. Bill was kind and generous to all who knew him. He was a principled, faithful, intelligent man, a wonderful husband, father, grandfather, and great grandfather. He was very generous to his family and kept his sense of humor until the end.
