WILLIAM C. "BILL" EYRE Obituary
WILLIAM C. "BILL" EYRE

On Dec. 25, 2011, the Eyre, Flores, Markgraf Lopez and Holsey families, along with countless others, lost one of the best men any of us have ever known, William Cameron "Bill" Eyre. Bill passed away with his family surrounding him at the age of 88.

Bill was born in Scotland on April 7, 1923. As a child he immigrated to Toronto, Canada with his parents and two sisters, Annie and Jean. After marrying Mildred Harrison they moved to Southern California in 1951, where he was a master machinist in the tool and dye industry. Bill and Mildred retired to Magalia, CA in the early 1970's.

Seldom has the world had a man that was such an island of comfort and peace, not only by what he said, but by how he lived. We will all miss him deeply.

Our love goes out to his loving wife of nearly 64 years, Mildred Jane Eyre, who will have our love and support. Goodbye Grandpa.

A private family memorial service is planned.

Arrangements are under the direction of the Neptune Society of No. CA, Chico Branch.
