Bill loved nothing more than being with his family. He loved being invited to "one of the kids or grandkids" house for dinner or a birthday party or out to lunch or dinner and never turned any of us down. Our dad was a quiet man with many words of wisdom. He loved a good hug when he arrived and when he left. Family and friends loved him dearly.
Bill was looking forward to skydiving on his 90th birthday. Bill enjoyed working in his yard and his neighbor said his couldn't keep up with Bill even at age 89.
Bill was involved in his church cell group and having coffee with his buddies every morning . Bill’s grandson, Michael Furubotten will officiate at his service at Grays Harbor Four Square, 4800 Central Park Drive on Friday February 23 at 11am.
