Wilbert "Bill" Hathaway Obituary
BILL HATHAWAY, Pianist, widely known in the Inland Empire music scene, passed away peacefully on Dec. 17, 2014, at age 92. Many remember him as the well-coiffed "piano man" from Nordstrom in the Galleria at Tyler, where he entertained customers for more than 19 years, and from the years he played at Mario's Place in Riverside. Earlier in his career he played in the jazz ensembles of Cal Tjader, Paul Desmond and other notable performers. Bill's cremains have been inurned at Riverside National Cemetery. A reception celebrating his life will take place on Jan. 24, 2015, at Acheson and Graham Garden of Prayer Mortuary in Riverside. Family and friends may stop by any time between 11am - 2pm. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorial contributions to Inland Valley Hospice in Riverside.
