William "Bill" Joseph Musser Bill Musser, longtime resident of Gig Harbor, passed away on June 18, 2016 at St. Anthony's Hospital following a long illness. Born July 17, 1941 to John and Regina Musser, Bill graduated from Fife High School in 1959; Central Washington University in 1966; and attended graduate studies at Pacific Lutheran University.
