William Lindley Asdell
1951 - 2020
ASDELL, William Lindley

born June 11, 1951, finished his long-awaited journey into the arms of Jesus June 5, 2020. Bill was predeceased by his parents, Herman and Harriett Asdell of Glendale, AZ, where he was raised. He married his beloved wife, Alison in 1976, had sons, John (Colleen) of Carlsbad, CA, James of Los Angeles, CA and grandchildren, Roman and Grace. After having completed his undergrad and graduate degrees in philosophy and philosophy of religion, respectively, he did his doctoral work at the University of Chicago. He then graduated from the UofA Law School in 1996. He was grateful for the opportunities afforded him to practice Estate Planning Law in Tucson. Bill would like to be remembered as one who loved God, his family and dear friends. He recognized that God's abundant grace sustained him as he learned humility and trust in our Savior. A memorial service will be deferred due to Covid. In lieu of flowers donations can be made to Christian Family Care, Navigators Ministry (Tucson) or University Ministry. Arrangements by ANGEL VALLEY FUNERAL HOME.

God bless you, Bill. I scarcely recognize you without the black glasses and evidence of your red hair, but remember you fondly from high school and look forward to seeing you again, one fine day. Brian Warner

I am so sad to hear that Bill has passed. He is now in the presence of our dear Lord. One can never forget Bills outstanding kindness, intellect and generosity. And of course, his sense of humor...dry humor.
In high school, Bill was like our north star. He was a leader and a positive example of working proactively to create a better society. We will miss him tremendously as he was one of a kind.
